Facebook gets freakier with Take This Lollypop
If you ever wondered who was looking at your public information, and you were silly enough to post real information rather than plausible dummy information, then “Take This Lollypop” will totally make your day.
Facebook indeed presents a danger for oversharing information that can allow a person to stalk you, you can make a conscious choice on what you share, and any good profile should never have a phone number, a publicly visible e-mail address, and should never ever have your real home address either.
Take this Lollypop is a horror movie in flash that uses your Facebook data to help you sink home the dangers of oversharing information in a world where you really don’t know who is on the end of the wire that you are connected to. Some screen caps here to make my point about Take This Lollypop.
You should have your kids view this; heck anyone should view this because it is perfectly true in so many ways. Stalkers and others abound, even I have had my fair share of stalkers, and death threats to go along with being a public figure because of my blogging and other things I do. Personally I found this funny but believe me, there is nothing more frightening than having someone show up on your door step wanting to kill you because you think that it is a good idea to have the CISSP and a college degree. This is some good stuff to think about.
