Further Facebook folly

Here and elsewhere you’ve read cautionary tales about privacy, or the lack of it, on Facebook. Now comes another one.

It seems that if you’re suing someone, the court may allow them access to your Facebook page — including private or deleted posts if they relate to the case. Of course, if you know for a certainty that you will never ever sue anyone, feel free to ignore this warning. Now you need only worry about losing your job, being denied insurance, having your child’s photo end up on a porn site, having your personal information sold or given to strangers, having a spouse or significant other find out about an indiscretion, having an acquaintance get angry because you didn’t grant him or her access to your page, or simply changing your mind and wishing you hadn’t posted that.

Okay, run along now and enjoy your Facebook.
