So, I’m noodling around the intarwebs, catching up on my morning news as I wake up with coffee in hand.
I come across a news story and comment on it as a logged in Facebook user. To my horror, next to my name, Facebook went ahead and helpfully told everyone on that page where I work — with a direct link.
Now, since that information is a little more sensitive than just my name and profile pic, I now have to spend the next several hours digging through my profile to find that offending piece of information and edit it. Even though no such link appears on any of the other people’s comments who posted via Facebook.
This is one of the reasons I haven’t been participating in social networking since it became a “thing,” because working in the industry, I know how data is acquired, transferred, and used for nefarious purposes. But THIS, even knowing all this, I still got a “shock”?!? Un-freaking-believable.
Hopefully it’s MY fault, and I simply goofed on the data entry points in Facebook, because otherwise…I…I just don’t know what to say. I pray this is my fault, and not Facebook’s.
