Don’t run your life on Facebook and MySpace – get a real life and real friends instead.

Eric Schmidt, Chairman and CEO of Google, has warned about the amount of personal data in cyberspace

He is totally right. Just “google” for your own name. You are there.

At least, somethings became clear. Remember that last job interview you attended and failed? Maybe your drunk pictures on Facebook had something to do with it.
