I am not a Facebook Alarmist and I heavily use the site daily for both personal and business purposes. I am aware of the “known privacy risk” that exist and I do my best to be smart about how I use Facebook as most knowledgeable users are. The key here is known risk and there seems to be a steady stream of disclosures and a pattern of apologies coming from Facebook regarding privacy infringements experienced by it’s users.
I advocate for the use of Facebook, I believe it is an important site if your desire is to engage in social media to connect with family and friends or to grow your business and brand. I continue to teach that Facebook continues to be a key component to what I teach about establishing your online presence and cultivating an online community.
