Globe series on privacy and social networking

The Globe & Mail is running a series on privacy and social networking sites, particularly Facebook. I'm not sure that readers of this blog will be shocked at what's posted online but it's still an interesting read:

Friday, September 12, 2008: Faceless no more: Social networking comes with a price

Saturday, September 13, 2008: The not-so-private price paid for social networking

On Monday, look for Part 2 of the series in Report on Business: Matt Hartley looks at how social networks have affected consumer privacy and reports on the federal privacy commissioner's plans to safeguard consumer information.

And on Tuesday, we'll run Part 3 — David Hutton reports on the efforts that one Canadian-based social network is making to root out underage users, who, studies show, can be far more revealing than older social networkers.
