The Onion: Facebook a Dream Come True for CIA

The Onion: Facebook a Dream Come True for CIA

First off, I love The Onion. They have a way of summing up exactly what we all think, but most of the time don’t dare say. Even though this video is comedy, I thought it was relevant for the blog. Facebook has revolutionized how we communicate with out friends and families – so much so that we now know what everyone is up to – and where they’re doing it – all the time. While this certainly has it’s benefits for us marketing types, we should remind ourselves as Facebook users – and users of the social web in general – that we are sharing information online. Forever.

I am OK with my information being out there. I don’t care that people know how old I am or that I live in Santa Barbara. Sure, some will say I am taking a risk by putting those pieces of info out there, but I think there are risks in everything. You have to live your life. Just understand the parameters you’re comfortable with in using the internet and stick within them.
