Accidental Overexposure, Facebook-Style

By January 29, 2013

Follow me on:

We all know people who have over-shared on Facebook and other social media sites.  It happens.  As long as you don't wind up on one of those websites that makes fun of stupid people on Facebook, you're golden.  Right?

Sort of.  Turns out, there's a new way to potentially embarrass yourself online, and it's called Facebook  Graph Search. Remember that time you "liked" something silly, like "Girls With Big Jugs Driving Tiny Cars?"  It made you giggle, right?  I'm sure you and your friends had a good time goofing about it when that "like" came across their news feeds.  What you didn't remember at that moment, is that the internet is forever, and a simple click of the mouse can really mess you up down the line.

they're all gonna laugh at you

"They're all gonna laugh at you!" - From the film, "Carrie"

In an effort to keep all of my Web Humor friends safe from shame and scrutiny, I took a look at the new Graph Search situation in this article.  I hope that it encourages you all to take a look at your privacy settings, and think twice about what you say and do online.  I know I will.  In fact, I never wrote this.  I was never even here.  Shhhh.

Much agreed. I find out a little something completely new
and complex on sites I find on http://humor.about.com/b/2013/01/29/accidental-overexposure-facebook-style.

htm on a daily basis. It’s definitely helpful to read through posts from other authors and implement something from other pages.
