Think twice before you post anything on social networking sites.

Social networking sites allow you to express yourself and keep in touch with friends by exchanging messages or comments and posting personal profiles describing who you are and your interests, blogs or online diaries, photos, creative writing, artwork, videos, and music. Instant Messaging (IM) and sharing online profiles are popular forms of social networking.

If practiced safely, there can be many positive aspects of social networking. You can connect with friends and seek like-minded individuals. However, you should understand how posting too much information on your profile and communicating with people you’ve only met online can put you in potential danger.

Some sites and services ask you to post a “profile” with your age, sex, hobbies, and interests. While these profiles help you connect and share common interests, potential exploiters can and do use these profiles to search for victims.
Users may pose as someone else — a different person or a person of a different age — without others knowing. Such users have taken advantage of this and this aspect of social-networking profiles to entice or sexually exploit teens.
You can’t “take back” the online text and images you’ve entered. Once online, “chat” as well as other web postings become public information. Many web sites are “cached” by search engines, and photos and text can be retrieved long after the site has been deleted.
Teens have been punished by their families; denied entry into schools; and even not hired because of dangerous, demeaning, or harmful information found on their personal sites or blogs.

Facebook, Twitter, WordPress Fail Security Report.

Facebook, Twitter, and WordPress have failed a security exam conducted by "security think tank" Digital Society, highlighting old vulnerabilities most recently displayed by the spread of Firesheep.
Gmail and WordPress, which use an encryption and identification process known as SSL, received A's. Google scored a C, Yahoo and Amazon received a C-, and Hotmail and Flickr received a D-.

The main reason Twitter and Facebook failed is because neither uses complete SSL authentication, according to the report. In other words, a user can't know for sure if the authentication page they think they're visiting is actually HTTP. WordPress without SSL, the free version commonly used by personal bloggers, also lacked SSL authentication for logins.

A Facebook spokesman said the company has "been making progress testing SSL access across Facebook and hope to provide it as an option in the coming months."
