Why do people distort their faces when they post a picture in the WAYWT thread? - Page 5

post #61 of 87
I have posted my picture in the past, and blocked my face. I couldn't afford my superhero identity be compromised.

Yeah, I'd noticed that, too, especially the avatar. But I didn't like to say anything as he seems somewhat less obnoxious in this incarnation and I'm a big believer in people being able to re-invent themselves. I wish him the best of luck with the new personality.

So stupid... I've known about this for at least 3 years and have put my number on there exactly for this purpose.

Facebook CEO 'Doesn't Believe In Privacy'

"Facebook has come under fire from privacy advocates, users, and now even US senators for what many believe is the site's lack of concern for protecting user privacy."


"Off record chat w/ Facebook employee. Me: How does Zuck feel about privacy? Response: [laughter] He doesn't believe in it."

...and I wonder why people worry about their stuff going public on Facebook?

Entertainment abounds when new job applicants get their facebook pages reviewed by HR.

The problem is posting stuff anywhere on the internet and assuming it is private, the www is a bucket with many many holes.

I wake up every morning having to look at my mug, why should you guys get off any easier.
By posting my picture I've learned that I look like Luftvier's father if he was blind and had to dress himself.

I have two high ranking HR friends. They say that now they google every applicant. They can't believe the weird stuff that comes up. My suggestion is to manage your public/internet image well and you will be OK.

I bet HR and bosses also Google existing employees as well. See what their employees have been up to.

Be very careful about what one puts on Facebook, it could change one's career.

+1. I hear that this is true for job applicants and current employees.

Fairly easy to do on Facebook: check "only friends can search for me" and you're good.

It's not paranoid not to show your face everywhere on the net... You don't go in the streets putting posters of your face everywhere, after all.

^This. And after saying that: there are some mildly embarrassing pictures and stories about me out there. The good thing is that you have to wade through a mountain of flattering posts and stories to find them... well as long as you don't search "goat luver"...

As for posting here I recommend we all use PTWilliam's mug. tongue.gif

Probably OK as long as you know who your FB "friends" actually are, and you can trust them 100%. After all one wouldn't really want the boss and employer seeing the coke snorting pictures or the incriminating taking part in London riots snaps would one? Facebook's privacy options can change at the drop of a hat, as has happened before, and supposedly private stuff goes public for all to see. Plus Mr. Zuckerberg evidently doesn't really care for privacy anyway. http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/facebooks_zuckerberg_says_the_age_of_privacy_is_ov.php
