snap my facebook wall

Many of us “social media” types have a love/ hate relationship with various services, most especially Facebook. It never ceases to amaze me how many of my daily conversations are going on there, but also how many people end up knowing my business. Things might be getting worse.

Imagine that you log into your Facebook page and there staring you in the face on your “Wall” is a comment from a bill collector. Or worse, you’re being served a lien via a Facebook message. This terrible travesty of privacy violations is all thanks to a court in Australia who have ruled to allow a mortgage lender to serve notice.

This is probably what’s coming for Australian Facebook users, but is not a problem for American users, as it’s not a legally acceptable method of delivery for being served. But it’s an example of how social media can be abused. Can you say “change my privacy settings, please”, boys and girls?
