Facebook safety and privacy in podcast and video

Filed Under: Facebook, Malware, Podcast, Privacy, Social networks, Spam, Video

This podcast with Sean Richmond, Senior Technology Consultant at Sophos Australia, examines Sophos's 2009 Facebook ID Probe, which suggests that social networkers are too open with personal information.

Many people want to know, "Does it really matter?"

In this podcast, downloadable below or viewable in your browser as a video, we've tried to answer this and other questions:

  • Is my attitude to privacy on social networking sites important?
  • Are identity thieves really interested in me?
  • Should I revisit my online attitude in the light of Facebook's changes?

Once you've watched the video (or listened to the podcast), please take a look at our Facebook security guide, and join our community of 120,000 people (and growing!) on Facebook itself.
