I don't mean on private pages (or on a secured server like when you pay a bill).  I've just noticed several siggies or pages where someone puts their first and last name, bdays, etc.  To me, this seems like inviting trouble (lol i was even called a crazy stalker when a girl posted her private info and i googled it in an attempt to show her how easy it is to find someone).  What do you think?  Do you think this is safe?  If not, have you taken a good look at your page (here, myspace, facebook, etc) to see if you have enough sporadic info for a perv to track down how to find you?

I used to until I clued in and realized it wasn't safe.  Unfortunately, all that previous info. is still floating out there in cyberspace.

not personal as in location...sometimes i might answer a post with general like {city... or state}

but... there is a lady right down the street from me with the same name!  it wouldn't be hard to find me either way.

 i live in rhode island...which is the size of stamp in comparrison to where you all live.

 put it this way.... if you live here and i don't know you... i know i know one of your cousins... or the friend of a friend.

so... you can't hide here.

trust me....no one wants to stalk me anyway... i'm not that sexy! lol

I can't believe some of the post I read on here. I read about people lying about who their kids dad is so they can collect welfare. Don't these people realize that what they post is not private.

I don't share a bunch of personal information. I don't even like sharing the link to my myspace page, because I may have more personable information there, because there's mostly family members on my myspace. I have one friend from cafemom on my myspace page and that's about my limit.

Same here.  I had a momentary freak out when I put a picture of the front of my house to show the snow and realized you could see my house number.  Won't be doing that again!  I'm sure if someone wanted to track me down they could, but I don't want to make it any easier for them.
