I have actually completed the security steps that linked to in a previous post. I hope that Ben Brooks’ article is read widely. I’ve been hacked online and recently a friend has been hacked. This is not just something that happens to somebody else.
This is something that happens when you’re drinking your coffee or when you’re just messing around on the internet at home.
I must also say that I love the Coffee Emporium and have never had any trouble there. It just so turns out that it’s their mug that I have the picture of.
Put down your coffee cups, wherever they are from, and read the article that I referenced two days ago here.
Questions (hit reply, or post to your blog):
1. Is Facebook clueless, unethical or just unlucky? Why?
2. Will Facebook’s latest behavior result in more lawsuits and/orindustry regulation?
3. Do you trust Facebook with your information?
via Is Facebook unethical, clueless or unlucky? « The Jason Calacanis Weblog.
1. I’d say all three: they are unlucky because they unethically adopt the clueless innocent pose in front of their users.
2. Yes on the lawsuits, because Facebook is big enough that it’s going to get lawsuits no matter what it does. However, I have seen enough outrage, and not just from Jason, that I believe this latest privacy action will result in more lawsuits on this specific subject. I am also still naive enough to hope that a few more “best practices” sorts of announcements regarding privacy might be put out by other Internet companies, specifically geared at the naive first-time user.
