Groping Around in the Privacy Space [2:56 pm]

Basics - Sharing Selectively on Social Networking Sites (pdf)

Much of the danger lies in the fact that, increasingly, our “friends” on social networking sites are actually a mix of people — friends, family, acquaintances, colleagues — with whom we would normally share only a piece of our lives.

The good news is that the sites, eager to prevent jittery users from scaling back what they share, have been busily adding features to give us more control over our information. These privacy settings are not always easy to find and use, and they can get downright complicated. But if you think before you post and put the privacy settings to work, you can socialize and network in the way that is comfortable for you, with less worry about mishaps.
