The social networks are the proverbial poster child for the web 2.0 paradigm and privacy isn't their central preoccupation as they seek to facilitate rich linking between members.

Sharing data which is personal in nature isn't inherently dangerous for an individual IF that data can be deleted (by the rightful owner) should anything go wrong.

Unfortunately, it's not that easy because information, by its very nature, can be easily harvested, analyzed, archived and mined for tasty details.

Perhaps the best way to thwart at least part of the risks of being online is to "strategically lie" about our more sensitive data sets.

The true friends will likely understand it's a cover but the data thiefs will fall in the trap.

In the end, everybody's responsible for their own data so education on online social networking is necessary.

Thanks for sharing your presentation!
