Quote: Only I am assuming if they read the sites T&Cs - or does it say it on the photo page too? I haven't noticed it.

No if you click on the photo it has the user name assigned to it. With some sites you wouldn't see any of this on first view...just the "curator"

But does that clearly show ownership - All the username shows is who uploaded it.

Yes true - there's no real easy way to ensure what's uploaded is the owner's...we have eagle eye members who often spot people doing that and we remove the photo and sometimes ban them.

It might be good to have the line in the T&Cs about photo ownership near the photo if we are attracting more visits as a result of FB sharing.

But it is true that they aren't the only one's who do it.

I don't use my real name online so data collection can't link me to my online activities.

I use a data blocking software called Ghostery which blocks most of the data collection software.

I have switched off history options in google.

I don't post anything online I don't mind the whole world knowing because once it is online the whole world knows. Whether they care or not is another story but it constantly amazes me how much of their personal and private lives people post on line.

I have even had people "yell" at me for commenting on their public posts on Twitter about a celebrity ... hello your feed is PUBLIC! If you don't want people other than your friends seeing it - set it to private or get off altogether. (That is when I still had Twitter)

I only recently and incredibly reluctantly joined FB to connect with family who are on FB and do not interact via other msging services SIGH .. but am already seriously considering leaving. I am not on Twitter, Myspace, Flikr or any of those sites. I am, however, oddly enough on Weibo which I find very different in character to Twitter and very pleasant to use.

Believe me when I say that forensic specialists will find you no matter what you call yourself or what "blocking" software you use.

Any step you take might make it more awkward for "nuisance" scammers, spammers and suchlike morons to find you, but don't put any money on it.

Indeed. One suspects these individuals may have thought they could hide behind internet "anonymity" !

Yes indeed but don't you think that the " sentence " handed out was an insult to the person they named and hardly a deterrent for anyone contemplating
doing something similar ? But that's another thread I guess.

I don't plan on doing anything anywhere that would require a forensic specialist to examine my online or offline activities. However a reasonable level of caution when using the net is necessary for protection from all the different data mining / cookie collecting services that collect data on what, where, when you do things so that they can sell you stuff and all the other more than slightly scary big brother is watching stuff that they do with it. And also from things like your photo ending up on an advert for online dating or photos of your kids being used on porn sites.

Sick world we live in sometimes and reasonable precautions are necessary. You don't walk down the street naked for all the world to see and yet people are 'naked' online. You don't put all your private details down to where you went yesterday, who you spoke to, and what you said on your front door for any one to read, but you don't think that your every move online is logged by some one somewhere.

You have to ensure that you have same degree of privacy online as you have in the real world and as no-one is giving it to you, or really protecting your rights to privacy online you have to protect yourself.

We all know caveat emptor, but the same applies to being online. User beware.

I use a much more sophisticated strategy, all you need to do is cultivate a personality that is so dull no one in there right mind would be bothered to take an interest in you Smile
