It's really a sad thing that the internet can be such a place of abuse and mistrust.
I would love to share more pictures with my CC family but have been very cautious about doing so. I'm always trying to find the balance between common sense, wise discernment, and utter paranoia.
I'm by no means an expert, but another problem I've heard about is that people can take your photo and then put your face onto other images, such as in situations you'd rather not have your image be associated with. And there are plenty of people out there who will do that, whether a stranger with too much time, or someone you might know who acts out of spite (such as a disgruntled co-worker.)
Just imagine having your boss, co-workers, family, or even strangers looking at pictures of "you"--in photos that would not only be embarrassing (because there will always be some people who don't know any better or want to believe it's true), but could cost you your job and reputation.
Does anyone else out there have stories of internet scams or things that they've dealt with?
I would really like to hear your stories, along with any tips or advice you have regarding internet safety.
