Privacy!

There has been so much in the news and social media about privacy. Bottom line, if you're posting information on the internet, it is NOT private. I highly suggested everyone signup for the FTC's newsletter. It's amazing what can and will happen to us if we are not alert and on top of our rights and responsibilities. We are fair game for any shady company, debt collector or hacker.

"A consumer who has no problem revealing her browsing history to advertising companies targeting their pitches to her interests may feel very differently about the collection of that information if it’s going to the financial company deciding whether to give her a mortgage, or the health insurer setting her rates, or the prospective employer determining her career path."
Jon Leibowitz, FTC Chairman
