Facebook to the rescue?

22-Sep-07 02:04 pm EDT Leave a comment Go to comments

Should I take back what I said this week concerning Facebook?  Not at all – and a story this week lauding the social networking site to which I and a whole lot of others have been sucked into over recent months illustrates why.  While praising it as the vehicle by which a potentially rabies-infected woman was found, the story didn’t mention that Facebook’s privacy and security features would generally have made this kind of search quite impossible.

They were just darned lucky the woman in question kept her profile public.

Facebook still needs to revamp privacy and security features so that harrassment isn’t quite so easy; so that people don’t fall victim to "anonymous" attacks using its service.
