I thought the phallic Sleeze Detector meter was a hoot.

"Can you just imagine how that goofy ass tattoo is going to look on your ass when you're 80?"
"Can you just imagine what some hottie is going to NOT do when she finds out what you're like on FB?"

Ah, how the decisions of youth come back to haunt some.

I keep preaching to family members that they HAVE to be aware of social profile harvesters now. Those who keep their online personae squeeky-clean are going to be top of the pecking order for the best jobs this decade ...think of it as secondary resume'-building. Though I think it's largely over-hyped for the average consumer right now, I believe the situation is going to get far worse as technology expands to be able to digest this data in wholesale quantities. Even now, it's pretty easy to connect the dots:

Dot 1:
"Companies that provide so-called alternative credit information say their business is booming, even as the rest of the lending industry continues to shrink"
Lenders Look Beyond Credit Scores to Gauge Who's a Risk

Dot 2:
"Companies such as Rapleaf hunt and gather social networking transmissions, turning the conversations you have in your network into consumer profiles. These profiles provide banks with insight into your behavior patterns - what you like and dislike, want and don't want, do well and do poorly."
Can your comments affect your credit? Yup.

I think the correct posture here is to quiet your friends and let your enemies run wild.

May the best geek win!
