Episode 70: Status Games and Security Risks
Have you ever seen someone post a "game" in there status update? Like the "Build Your Stripper Name" game where you take the name of your first pet and the street you grew up on to make your stripper name. Or they might just ask everyone to post what street they grew up on, and everyone can learn about each other in the comments.
These might be fun games, but they also pose a security threat. If you'll notice, many of these questions are the same as the standard security questions used by online websites such as banks.
Even though your friends might not be trying to steal your information, depending on your Facebook settings--or theirs--this information can become public. Applications you use on Facebook can also allow people to gain access to your page.
Thus you must consider very carefully whether or not something you post will give people the opportunity to steal your identity.
