Digital identity is when you give information of your self or people give information about them selves and put it up some where so others can read it. People often lie about their digital identity on places like MySpace and Facebook so they don’t get stalked. People also are careful about the pictures and information they put on the internet.
People that use Facebook are getting stalked even after they leave the site. Facebook is using a program called Beacon that traces your activity and where you go after you leave the Facebook site. It is not really a predator or stalker but it’s the people who monitor and make Facebook who watch you. That is not good because those people can watch where you go and if they want to they could post stuff about where you went and then the people who help you with stalker could be stalking you.
People on MySpace are getting stalked because they are not careful about their information that they put up. If you don’t set your settings right anyone in the world can see your pictures, comments and writing and will be able to figure out stuff about you. I think people should be more careful about the information and the pictures they put on because people could find out more about you.
Beacon could also be good to find out what kind of things you like. For example, web sites that you like and stuff like that. But they could also just have a survey that asks what kind of sites you go to and it wouldn’t be a problem because people wouldn’t get stalked. Everybody would be safer if they used a user friendly tracking device.
People are not checking their security and more careful about their posted information. The result of this is that people are getting stalked. People are also getting stalked be the website itself. Facebook is using a program to find out where people are going after their done using their website. I think it could be of some use to find out what people like to make the website better but I don’t think their using it for that. If they are using it for that then they should prove that they are or just get rid of it. Over all I think it is a bad program and they shouldn’t use it.
