You spend your time chatting to friends and sharing pictures with your friends, not really thinking about who else is able to see your pictures and your information. It is often only when it is already too late that you consider the safety and security of your social networking sites.

A story circulated online about a woman in the United States who received an email from a friend of hers in Holland saying that she saw a picture of the woman`s family in a supermarket ad on a billboard in Holland. She included a picture in her email and the woman in the United States was shocked to see that it was indeed a picture of her family. She had not submitted the picture to any company for use in advertising nor had any company contacted her asking her permission to use the picture.

After doing some research, the woman discovered that the supermarket company had taken her picture from a popular social networking site. While there are some precautions that users can take to protect their privacy, often the default settings only loosely protect privacy. It is not necessarily in the best interest of the social networking site to publicize the potential dangers and therefore not all users are aware of the necessity of adjusting the privacy preferences to best protect themselves.

Having a family picture stolen to be used in a supermarket ad is a fairly innocuous situation

, but it could have been much worse. People are not always careful about what types of pictures they share on social networking sites. Thinking that only friends will see the picture gives people a false sense of security when they post pictures of their latest family vacation. What people often fail to consider is that friends of friends may also be able to see the pictures (if the privacy settings are not configured properly) and those `friends of friends` may not be the kind of people you would want looking at your family pictures.

It is easy enough to simply copy and paste a picture directly from a social networking site, so if a picture gets into the wrong hands, there is no limit to what could be done with it. Pictures may end up as unsolicited advertisements, such as the case in Holland

, or the situation could be much worse and pictures of children could end up on child pornography sites.

Aside from pictures being stolen, there is also concern about identity theft or the sharing of private or identifying information. Again, when people believe that only their friends are seeing the information, then they have no reason to believe that they should not post their address and phone number on their profile. After all

, they would readily hand out this information to their friends. In this case as well, it is crucial to consider that your online friends have friends of their own who may get access to your page and to your information. Just because they are friends of your friends does not mean that they are automatically trustworthy.

When it comes to social networking sites, it is best to take the attitude of `better safe than sorry`. It is not necessary to remain totally anonymous and not to share any information at all because that would defeat the purpose of a social networking site. It is, however

, critical to be aware of all of the privacy settings and make sure that you have set them at the appropriate levels to keep yourself and your information safe.

THE UNIQUE "TOUCH OF YOU!"
(Being A Positive Influence In Your World)
?Lee Wise 2002

I was in front of the computer at home.

Nothing new for me!

I heard a few voices and the dog barking.
That small dog "yap yap" that triggers not
nice thoughts in my mind. I wont' go into
that Sad

SOME FOLKS I KNEW

At any rate

, I knew the three folks that had
just stopped in to say "Hi!"

Why did I know them?

Well, one was my son-in-law: I'd better know
him! Beyond the son-in-law factor was
something else --

I have taught each one of them at one level
or another about what they were doing: visiting
people!

THE JOY OF INFLUENCE

Sitting here at my computer and reflecting
about me being a positive influence in their
lives brings me great joy!

It is the joy of being a positive, personal
influence in the life of another person.

SOMETHING YOU CAN'T BUY

You don't purchase the power of *personal*
influence. Note the word I used:

"Personal."

I will say it again: you don't purchase the
power of personal influence.

You earn it.

Step by step, action by action

, and word by
word ... it is earned.

You "create" a hearing by consistently giving
people the "good things" you possess.

And what are those good things?

Your sincerity, time, and wisdom. I have found,
however

, that if I am going to give people these
"good things" I must have possess something
myself.

DETERMINATION

I must be determined. I must value being a
positive influence in my world. And, I must
*feel* that value "deep enough" inside of me to
keep me in the game!

A "LIFE" EQUATION

Maybe I could put it li.
