I have to say I am still in two minds about Facebook.
On one hand - social networking is a great tool and one that CRN is fully embracing - but the level of information contained on this site is quite frightening.
People, especially younger people stick all their personal information up there such as parties, when they are going on holiday, when their parents are away etc, which could (and does) cause problems if the information falls into the wrong hands.
Employers are also looking at potential job candidate's Facebook profiles to see whether they would be suited to a job or not, although I understand this is not supposed to happen - it still does.
I was at a wedding this weekend (fantastic wedding - congrats again Kate and Mike!) and within a few hours a load of pictures were up on Facebook - one a particularly embarrassing one of me dancing with a bridegroom-shaped balloon ('nuff said).
That kind of stuff I don't mind at all (honest guv!) - but Ministry of Defence (MoD) staff are posing quite a problem according to research out today. Allegedly, according to information acquired through a Freedom of Information request to the MoD, staff have leaked sensitive information via Facebook 16 times in the last 18 months.
If that sort of information falls into the wrong hands, there are severe implications for national security.
