Everyone from journalists to students, blogosphere to wall street, hackers to homemakers, and now even Washington DC lawmakers, are talking about a wide range of issues involving market share, social media, marketing, and much more!
The two most important issues everyone is talking about are “Privacy” and “Cyber Crime”.
Byron Acohido, USA Today, recently reported that Chris Calabrese, legal counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union was quoted saying that the latest Facebook changes touch a privacy nerve, “There’s a loss of user control here, combined with the permanent nature of the information, it means there is a lack of the ability for consumers to control and protect their online reputations.”
Privacy controls only protect users' profiles from being viewed by the general public, but do not stop hackers, companies, and governments from viewing and abusing a persons personal & financial life.
Facebook, Google+, and most social networking sites today offer numerous privacy controls that somewhat protect users' privacy. These numerous privacy controls do not protect users people from Cyber Crime, Big Brother Abuses, and Profiling.
"When you go into a department store, you know that the store's security camera and staff are watching you. You fill out credit card applications, surveys, and socialize. This is all done knowingly and voluntarily,"
Regardless of what sites today promise regarding security, any site can be hacked. (Some examples would be: governments, banks, and law enforcement agencies who all have "so called" state of art security systems). Social networking sites such as Google+ and Facebook are open-door gold mines for cyber criminals. The obvious solution to address these problems involving privacy, anonymity and cyber crime is simple; no real names, no emails.
