"Secret" service, now on Facebook!

A small row in the UK because the wife of the new head of MI6 has placed pictures of her family including her husband on Facebook.

sirjohnIncluding information on the place where they live, where they go on holiday and other information. I think this is a good example of how more and more people are used to publicising information on themselves that they would not have thought about publicising some years ago.

Reaction of the foreign secretary: ‘It is not a state secret that he wears Speedo swimming trunks. Let’s grow up.’

Of course he is right on the swimming trunks. I omitted that picture not of secrecy but of bad taste … However this is an example how social networking is becoming part of our everyday existence and that even the family of the head of MI6 do not realize the width of the audiences like Facebook has.

Interesting discussion which I am thinking of bringing up with the company I work for. We have several consultants working for defence and police departments and most of them use their assigments as part of their Linked-In profiles. So do I actually, but if you think about it, we don’t actually know how our clients think about this. I think every company which deals with this should have some sort of policy for this.
