Is your facebook status an open book?

I know a lot of my family and friends think Facebook is the “bees knees” but frankly it’s got more problems in privacy than you can imagine.

Hopefully you have worked your way through the byzantine privacy settings so that you ARE NOT showing your birth year, location, address etc.
How about those status messages that your future employer is reading? You are writing them for your friends only? Maybe not.
Will Moffat, Peter Burns and James Home, Facebook users and website developers developed a website called openbook to demonstrate how the status messages of members can be searched by the public.

Give it a try, amazing what people are willing to share….
