How Someone Can Steal Your Identity on Facebook!

By June 23, 2009

Follow me on:

I ran across this post about how someone could potentially steal your identity using a social networking site like Facebook. He actually uses Facebook as the main example. It's interesting to see how much information one gives out on Facebook without really realizing it. But, I think he goes a bit overboard.

Is it really possible for someone for steal your identity from the trivial information you scatter around Facebook? I suppose so, but it would be tons or work. Hacking and prying and keeping track of everything. Would take months, or longer.

Would it be worth it? I guess it depends on who's identity they were stealing.
