The past few days there have been a lot of interesting articles on Facebook. I thought this most recent one would be particularly important to all law students or any professional making sure job searching is not hindered by what is put on facebook. This article explains how to protect everything you have on facebook.
With all of the hoops one has to jump through to keep his private information private, it makes me wonder if Facebook is even worth it all. Here is an interesting article about how a lot of people have just given up on Facebook altogether because it is too much of a hassle to keep everything about their lives updated and private.
In light of these two articles, I think it is rather interesting how one father prohibits his daughter’s use of Facebook. For all of us that have grown up with Facebook usage being the norm, our first reaction is probably “how dare he do that? She has the right to have Facebook!!!” But when it comes down to all the hoops one has to go through to keep information about one’s personal life private, and the fact that many now conclude that the site isn’t even worth using, then maybe this over-protective father is doing his daughter a favor. I would greatly appreciate anybody’s thoughts on these.
