Facebook... oh Facebook

Welcome to social networking in the world, Facebook. I think almost all of my friend have an account in there. Its a place for us to put personal online profile; share photos, news and gossip with friends. What makes social networking on the Internet so popular is the power it gives individuals to create, maintain and expand any number of networks to include family, close friends and people who share a similar interest, profession or hobby.

But please concern about it...

There was a study showed that employees spend at least 30 minutes a day visiting these sites with some employees spending up to three hours of their working day taking care of their online profile. How about u friends... haha i think, firsthing that u do after arrive in the office, u will open your facebook account and upadate status, put some comment from friends's photos n status too.

And how about while you are at home, facebook too interesting for you, sometimes when your kids home we still sit down in fornt of the computer, and open our facebook account..stay awake until late too ohhh... One thing especially for me, I left my blog cause of that hahaha..

In smaller organizations, unnecessary browsing, uploading to and downloading of files from social networking sites can eat up bandwidth thus affecting network resources.

Particularly young people — don’t seem to care about privacy or who has their information. This can result in data or identity theft. Becareful when you share something personal in this social network site, especially phone number. If u want your friend know about it, just send itvia message, I think it will be safe.

Sites are attractive to hackers and spammers: Social networking sites are attracting hackers armed with malware of all kinds: spyware, viruses and online scams. Hundreds of applications being developed for these sites are used as launch pads of malware such as Trojans

.... still unresolved problem ....
There is no clear legal principle that defines who “owns” the photos uploaded to a digital photo album, or a comment posted by one user on someone else’s Facebook Wall. If u are professional photographer just take care about that. Anyone can take your picture and use it for anything

What do we do when somebody uses Facebook as a tool to attack another? How do we make sure that our privacy is respected when our personal information is in others’ hands?

Ok.. think all the matter... and happy facebook-ing
