With all the recent video viruses (obama - clinton scandal, candid camera prank and distracting beach babes) that came out recently, the biggest social networking site (facebook) now faces a big deal against privacy issues to its users.

What happens is because users are inexperienced, the bad guys take advantage.

Check out this article from yahoo about the 7 Things to Stop Doing Now on Facebook.

Sophos, an IT security firm conducted a new survey to 1588 users. A whopping 60 percent are considering leaving the social network while 16 percent already did due to insufficient control over their data.

Facebook Privacy

Senior Technology Consultant Graham Cluley of Sophos also wrote a blog post regarding this issue.

"A mass exodus from Facebook seems unlikely, but Facebook members are clearly getting more interested in knowing precisely who can view their data," wrote Graham Cluley, Senior Technology Consultant, Sophos, in a blog post.

"With this survey showing that only 24% of users aren't thinking about quitting, Facebook will need to make sure further changes to the privacy policy are clear, concise and in the interest of making it easier for members to know exactly who has access to whatever they chose to upload."


My opinion on this is I think they should do a survey to more people. I mean, 1588 is nothing compared to the millions of facebook users around the world! I'd like to see results from those numbers.

Facebook also has to make noob-friendly tutorials on how to set their privacy because most users don't know how to set their privacy options safely, and find the process confusing.

What about you? What part of the percentage are you on?
