Privacy Threats Are Abound
Facebook quizzes seem relatively harmless. But a recent app the ACLU put together as a quiz demonstrates the amount of information you make available when you take the quiz to find out what Wizard of Oz character you are. The article cited below notes that “Once details about your personal life are collected by a quiz developer, who knows where they could end up or how they could be used. Shared? Sold? Turned over to the government?”
While these questions may seem alarmist, the report certainly sheds light on exactly what is private on Facebook – really nothing. You may think you are only sharing photos and information with your friends, but the reality is that you shouldn’t put anything on Facebook that you do not want shared with the entire world.
