Hereâ€™s another reason why you must be careful when it comes to social networking. Recently, a Canadian computer technician has found a way to circumvent Facebookâ€™s privacy control to access images and personal information even if the privacy setting is limited to a few people.
According to a news report, Byron Ngâ€™s super cool trick has given him access to private photos of Paris Hilton at the Emmy Awards, office gatherings, spring break parties and even the personal photo album of its co-founder Mark Zucerkberg.
Unfortunately, the tales of stalking came to an abrupt end after Facebook quickly rectified this loophole. Then again, Ng is just one of the many gifted computer experts out there who can find ways to breach security and gain access to confidential information.
What Iâ€™m trying to say is never put too much trust on any site even if thereâ€™s assurance that your information tightly secured. Be responsible enough to know what images to share and contents to write. Otherwise, you might end up with so much regrets.
