Facebook - why would you trust it?

I don’t subscribe to MySpace, Facebook, Friends Reunited or most other similar sites. Why? Because you are putting a huge amount of information about yourself in someone else’s hands. That someone else may not just be your friends, it could be the site administrators or possibly even complete strangers.

Just today at work, hundreds of Facebook users are being shown the inboxes of other users. It appears to be some kind of web caching issue caused by recent updates to Facebook. This is a huge breach of the privacy of each Facebook user affected. Fortunately it doesn’t show the contents of other pages, just the inbox but that’s still a big deal.

I’ll keep to keeping to myself thanks!
