Thanks!
Thank you very much for posting, Dogluver

Thanks for the great reminder! Now that I think about it, there are some things I probably shouldn't have posted....Uh-oh. At least I don't (and won't) have a Facebook or Myspace account

This is a great warning for everyone! We can't live our lives in a bubble, but there are things we can do and precautions we can take to make ourselves safer online. You've given everyone a great message. Thanks!

I never planned on getting a Facebook or MySpace in the near future (I'm also not allowed) but now I definitely won't get one! I probably never could have analyzed this like you did, so thank you, you have actually just made me safer

I have never placed any picture of me nor my family on any accts for that reason It is better to place an icon or symbol of what you like instead.. just last week I was searching in yahoo images for a special pic and found a relative there who I know for sure has never ever left the country.. but there was here picture on a tropical island.. (someone copied it and pasted it on with her picture instead.. what a shock she got when I called her..

thanks for the alert.. I will be very careful..

We all know that here on WI we can ONLY give out things like:

- the state we live in

But I recently found out that WI has a Facebook account...
and there people from WI come and post things like "Hey, I'm (username) from WI!"
and whats "bad" about Facebook you ask?

It gives out this info:
- our 1st names
- our last names
- personal pictures

from there on an Online Predator could take your 1st and last name and search you up on Myspace (which I'm guessing most teens and some adults have)
And what do they get?

It gives this info out:
- more personal pictures
- age
- city
and sometimes even your phone #...

Now they have all the info they need to find you... they just go to Yellowpages, type in your city and last name... BINGO! They gotcha


So, you see how easy it was for me (a kid) to figure this out? Think of how easy it would be for an adult 2x smarter than me... So I just wanna warn you guys to think before decide what you want to give out on Facebook/Myspace/Youtube and all those other online resoures...

Stay safe, and thank you very much for reading
i agree thats why the only personal thing on my myspace page is my first and last name and for location i have northdakotalhomaand i live on the east coast.
