QOTD - Schultz on Social Networking

Social networking is incredibly popular, yet it poses so many risks that people should think twice before joining any social networking site. I decline all invitations to join MySpace, Facebook, and other sites mainly because of the risk of identity theft when personal information is shared on these sites. -- Dr. Eugene Schultz, CTO of Emagined Security
I concur with the exception of Twitter. Twitter's clean interface, easy to understand privacy settings (i.e. public or "protect my updates"), and popularity with security tweeple make it one of the leading platforms to grow one's knowledge of the field and network with fellow information security professionals.
