These days almost eveybody is using one or the other social networking sites like Orkut, Myspace, Facebook. I use orkut extensively. I use social networking site for social networking, to keep in touch with friends , for fun. How the information you put up on your proflle is used by employers, school administration is interesting. Following is a pretty neat article regarding the same

After reading the above articles, you ll realize if you should really be using these sites, how much information is too much to put there, How different people will interpret this information. I often get emails saying ” Dont put any pics on your profile as they might be used on illegal sites” . I dont know how true it is.

Pretty interesting though.. You never know what other people are upto. By just following your scraps, one can find whats going on in your life if you put too much info in scraps. I dont think one should stop using these sites but one should know of all the possible things that can happen by putting your personal information there.
