This review is from: I Know Who You Are and I Saw What You Did: Social Networks and the Death of Privacy (Hardcover)
We are what we post, claims Andrews. She shows how the same power of social networks that can topple governments can also topple a person's career, marriage, or future. One woman lost custody of her child due to a sexy photo on Facebook. A 24-year-old teacher lost her job because one of her 700 vacation photos posted on the web showed her visiting a Guinness factory. Andrews shows how anyone who has ever use the internet to undertake a Google search, email a colleague, or join an organization is vulnerable to having that information used against him (or her). She provides specifics about what's at risk--and how people can protect themselves. The subject matter of Andrews' book could not be more timely; her concern for the invisible erosion of personal privacy rights is totally on point.
