Yep seriously! Stores, banks, gas stations.

One thing that bothers me is that it is possible for people to hack into laptops or computers and watch your webcam. It's scary!! Technology is great, but has its pitfalls.
I now have a piece of tape over my laptop camera. Sorry...hope I don't get everyone all paranoid. :/

I think some of ya's need to step away from the computer for a bit.

The internet has been like this since it was created. ANYTHING you put on the web, private or not, can be found. Its never been a secret. 

The ONLY way to stop your information from being found is to NOT put it out there.

 My profile was set to friends only so I think I'm okay.  I'm sure if people really want my info, they'll get it regardless.
