Social Media = Bad Corporate Security

Report: Facebook caught sharing secret data with advertisers.

Especially with Mark Zukerberg(CEO of Facebook) calling his users obscene names and now being accused of securities fraud, this revelation isn’t surprising.  Right after the first series of Zuckerberg rants the company tried to do some damage control. That obviously is out the window with subsequent privacy issues and of course the potential securities issue. Honestly the fact that Myspace and other social networking sites are doing it as well isn’t shocking either.  If you want to have good corporate security you need to have strict policies that are enforced on  what data you put on these sites both publicly and “privately”.  If Mark believes in being so open..why aren’t his companies internal documents on the website?  I don’t see the business plans, corporate charter, daily operational reports, full listings and detailed bios on everyone there.  Nice try but I’m not buying it.
