Millions of users of the world's most popular social network may soon find their status updates embarrassingly posted on a new website.
The site, WeKnowWhatYoureDoing.com, bills itself as a social experiment and collects potentially troubling Facebook status updates - such as those about illegal activities or complaining about their employers - and posting them, according to a report from the New York Daily News
. Of course, this only affects those who do not take the time to increase their Facebook privacy settings and still have accounts that are open to the public.
As such, it is now more important than ever for consumers to increase their online privacy settings or at least show more discretion about the information they share with the public, the report said. The site says it accepts no responsibility or liability for what may result from its posting of people's statuses.Eduard Goodman
