    They don't make it easy, and it isn't an instant process, but it can be done.

      If you read the Facebook agreement, even of you don't post, but someone else posts about you, or uploads a picture of you, or tags you in a picture, Facebook owns that info.

      By agreeing with all the social network agreements, are we, in a sense, giving up some of our privacy?

      •  Anyone can post info about you anywhere (0+ / 0-)

        The only way to even get an inkling that such data exists is to occasionally google your own name.   And, IIRC, no one can tag you in a photo on Facebook unless you're a Facebook member.  They could caption a photo with your name, I suppose, but that's about it.

        I guess my larger point is, why shoot yourself in the foot by posting the details of your life online under your own byline, unless it's a professional necessity?
