An awkward, “queue the crickets” moment from a conference I attended last week:
A presenter, who was discussing the security risks inherent in sharing too much on social media sites, flashed what she felt was a redacted LinkedIn profile page from someone who met specific search criteria for conference attendees.
It was clear, from the audience’s murmuring , she didn’t redact enough.
It was pretty easy to decipher where the person worked, who their clientele was, etc.
She proved her point and I’m positive there were quite a few nervous people in the audience.
I’m also pretty sure there was a ton of people who subsequently edited their profiles…immediately.
