Since I can control the comments on my own blog I decided to write it here instead. So, here is the unposted post:
This could start a firestorm, but I feel it must be said. A bunch of my friends and family have been posting that privacy comment saying they will unfriend anyone who doesn't change their privacy settings...you know the one; and I just read a bunch of comments on the FB Q&A about how they are all upset that Facebook isn't private and how Facebook should be protecting our privacy. Guess what! Facebook isn't private, never was, and never will be. And neither is the Internet. Anything posted anywhere in "the cloud" can be seen, read, found.... If you don't want it seen, don't post it. If you don't want it read, don't write it and post it online. NO social media platform is private. Don't be mad at Facebook because your comment or picture is seen by others....be mad at yourself for posting it. I'm sick of hearing about how everyone is so upset that they posted something and it's all Facebooks fault that a bunch of people saw it. Facebook didn't post it...you did!
I'm sure there are those that will have something to say about this. Leave your comments if you would like. I'll respect your opinion and would appreciate your respecting mine...even if we don't agree.
Here's the truth about privacy settings....
