How Private is Your Social Networking?

Hi folks! So I’ve been following a number of stories out there on the Internet regarding social networking and a disturbing trend is beginning to emerge.

This probably ain’t news to most of you, but the Government is beginning to use social networking as evidence in court. So basically anything you post, even if it’s in your “private” area of your social network web site can be summoned as evidence if the court deems it’s necessary.

This is just another step in the wrong direction for online freedoms. Expect this trend to continue, and remember to be careful what you post. One day it just might come back to haunt you!
