What ever you put on a site, it is no longer private

There are a number of reasons why:

  • Your security settings may allow the public access to your information (unless if you tie it down and monitor it for changes by the hosting site)
  • The hosting site (eg: Facebook) have access to your information (you read the EULA, didn’t you?)
  • Law enforcement have access to your information (depending on jurisdiction, with or without a warrant)
  • Hackers may break/steal/social engineer their way through to get access to your information (more likely to be the last option)

What are your options:

  1. Never post anything that would get you expelled, fired or arrested
  2. Don’t post anything that would get you kicked out of your house, break up your relationship, start a fight.
  3. Don’t post anything that could be used against you
