Concerned about Facebook privacy? You should be, especially if you are using the iPhone or Android smartphone apps and allow your phone’s GPS to broadcast your location when tagging pictures or sending instant messages. Watch this short video all the way through as I talk about and demonstrate how I tracked my wife as she traveled from Atlanta, Georgia to Pensacola, Florida via Facebook’s instant message service. The accuracy is scary…
How do you think this information might be used against you in potential civil or criminal proceedings? If it is being collected, it is most certainly being stored on Facebook servers but no one really knows how long!
As a diligent private investigator doing everything I can for my clients, I’d be sure to ask our client’s attorney to subpoena this location-based information from anyone and everyone involved in litigation…
Think about that. Are you concerned now?
Tell me what you think in the comments below… if you have additional questions, don’t hesitate to ask and I will do my best to follow up with answers via another videocast.
