Social Site Warning

With the Fall college semester imminent, a lot of students are learning about what they shouldn't do while on campus, such as drugs or plagiarism. But there's something new to the litany of warnings this year: social networking sites. The immense popularity of sites such as Facebook and MySpace has many institutions educating students about the inherent dangers of posting unrestricted photos and writings on public sites. Many students aren't aware of how easily others can find this info, and the consequences can include anything from school discipline to online stalkers. Readers of this site will likely know better already, but the advice is simple: don't post content in public that someone could abuse at your own expense.
