From the desk of Mike Williamson, SurvivalBlog’s Editor At Large: It is very important, if one must use Facebook or other social media, that one NOT put personal information such as phone number, address, or birthday on these. The information becomes findable with a Google search. Additionally, Google archives the posts. I have had a stalker complain about a post I made a year ago, and a comment I made to another post two years ago. Most of Facebook’s monitoring of “Standards” is contracted out to companies who hire in Morocco, Indonesia, and other nations with both high levels of poverty and lesser concerns for background checks. Assume anything at all that you put in social media is immediately available to any stalker, agency, or foreign threat.
Remember that for advertising purposes, you are not Facebook’s customer, you are the product.
