We all know that Twitter and Facebook allows for some level of privacy in regards to your tweets and updates. Some users just make it very public while others make their updates very private and for the eyes of selected few. Thus, there was a concern that search engines, especially Google, will index these "private thoughts" as well. Mashable reported it will not. But my thought is - nothing is "private" in social media so this issue can indeed be a possibility.

The UK Government's communications agency GCHQ has issued a rare statement saying it has no plans to monitor every individual's emails. Instead, the Home Secretary says we should all be ready to have our ISPs record [URL="http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/8032367.stm"]all our Internet contacts[/URL]. I've met a few ISPs. They're going to be delighted, nay, ecstatic with this new management overhead they're now being asked to shoulder. As with the previous suggestion, which was to hire a private company to watch everyone's emails, this isn't going to work. The companies who'll need to offer up the information simply won't wear it. On the other …

Twitter users are a loyal bunch and few would argue that it's a useful networking tool. The one thing Twitter is not, however, is private. While that's not a big deal for most people, it certainly is in the world of academics where it's ill-advised to have children using communication tools that anyone can view. It's a good thing someone thought of [URL="http://www.edmodo.com/"]Edmodo[/URL]. Like Twitter, Edmodo is a free microblogging site, but without the subsequent privacy issues. Students and teachers are able to share notes or links to one another, send short messages or alerts, and otherwise communicate with each …

[I]Even on a slow day, I can have a three-way chat with two women at the same time -- Brad Paisley, [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GcVnhNjWV0"]Cooler Online[/URL][/I] But what if you work for the government?

Now comes the real question: So? …

Here's a good one, [URL="http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2008/may/01/italy"]according to The Guardian newspaper[/URL] in the UK, the incomes of each and every single Italian citizen were published for each and every other Italian citizen to see on the web. Rather than being some terrible data breach, or the work of some sinister hacker, it appears that it was the departing government which published the details. It seems, according to the Italian finance ministry at any rate, that this was done quite deliberately as part of a "crackdown on tax evasion." Although the move was not popular with critics of the government, although it does …
