ZOMG! People can find me on the INTERNETS [Sep. 1st, 2010|08:22 pm]

Wait, if I post something on the Internet, it's not secure? But it has a little "lock" picture. That totally meant that no one that I didn't want to see it could see it. It totally protects from people copy-and-pasting, screen-shotting, or letting other people read it over their shoulders!

*rolls eyes*

But seriously folks, while I respect the level of privacy people want to have on their journals, and I hope that people respect me in kind, I know very damn well that what you send out into the Internet, even e-mails, isn't all that secure, and can come back to bite you on the ass.

I agree with absolutely everything in your comment!

I think people should be able to reasonably assess their friends as responsible, trustworthy people. The one time I did mess that up, it was with someone who had had privacy issues in the past. It was a mutual mistake - it wasn't entirely my fault for trusting the person or entirely their fault for forgetting the information was confidential. Plus, they apologized and I forgave them.

I also agree that I don't have a problem with the facebook or twitter tie-ins. What I do wish is that I could get my friends on facebook to X-post to LJ, but I figure posting my LJ to my internet-identity facebook (indeed, I ONLY have Internet Identity Facebook) would actually be beneficial to my friends. I'm going to wait until they work out the kinks, though. LJ needs to promote itself more with other social media.

I know a lot of people who keep their info minimal on FB but not on LJ, and it's pretty hard to find an LJ if you keep it out of major search engines (which mine is).
