On Facebook Privacy

James Robertson: “To some extent, that’s like keeping a highly personal diary, and then storing it on your front porch. Sure, the porch is your property – but it’s not exactly private. I sure don’t have any illusions about how private something I put on Facebook (or any site I don’t control) is – I run with a default assumption that “anyone can see it”.”

Great point. I’ve lived a pretty open life of the web for the past nine years. When you have a weblog, everything is visible, knowing that is half the battle.

If you don’t want people to see what you’re up to, don’t post it. The world is watching.
