PSA: Facebook, you said what?

Link above is to a site that tracks publicly available infromation from Facebook accounts, an aggregator of sorts, split into four categories:  Who wants to get fired; Who's Hungover; Who's taking Drugs; & Who's got a new phone number.

More information about this site can be found at
including link to code to write your own program to do something similar.

I am not a fan of Facebook, mainly because I am security conscious, and I don't think there is any real way to make a social sharing site secure, but many people use Facebook and other social sites, without ever realizing just how exposed their information becomes when posted there.

I would think smart hackers would also use data mining of Social Sites for Phishing attacks.

Stay informed and stay safe,
