Addicted to Facebook and other social media, my goal is to have million friends online!
Addicted to friendship
Social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Friendster and MySpace are the in-thing nowadays by making friends online throughout the world. But experts warn that users, like me and you, are putting ourselves at risk from dangers such as identity theft and stalking. Even my e-mail address’ password was compromised. I cannot open my old Friendster account because of this. So the advice of the site was for me to create a new account.
There are basic precautions to consider when opening an account in the social networking sites.
2) Omit your full name, address, phone number, pets’ and maiden names or any personal details that could give hints to your password. How could this be possible when, for example, Google Ad Sense require authentic personal information to avail the monetization of my hub? This major monetary site even refuses my account because I didn’t give my telephone number or landline. The truth is I only have a cellular phone number which they say an unsecured line. Almost all sites require your personal information when you want their webpage.
3) The internet is open to the public. Yes, this is very true. I cannot take back the pictures I posted long ago; even I cannot access directly my Friendster account. Although I can still copy it, I cannot erase the originals from my old account because it becomes an extended account. Older versions may exist on other people’s computers
4) Don’t believe everything you read online. Moneymaking sites are daring to invite you to use their sites of avail their domain. My e-mail address is being bombarded by e-mail and spam because I tried joining one site but didn’t push through, yet they kept urging me to buy their products. I reported one site to the cyber police because I think it’s not an authentic site.
So, you have 50, 000 friends online? Good for you. Me, I have one million friends online. Just kidding!
