This post is in response to a recent attack on my facebook account. My account was hacked and infected with a facebook virus this week. As a result, either the virus, or someone else took control of the account, and sent all of my friends a random message. I’m not the biggest fan of facebook, and it actually took some time to convince me to join the site. After this week’s infection, I’ve considered ending my account. But facebook has become so crucial to staying connected with my friends, this really wasn’t an option. Please read this article from BusinessWeek about Facebook Privacy.
