The value of your Digital Self

Two posts on the Digital Self topic on the same day – never happened before!

Anyway, the usually interesting The Register has this article about the threat of Socialbots who pass themselves as real people on Facebook and fool other users into accepting a friend request to then scrape their user data.

This only confirms the incredible value locked up in people’s digirtal selves, and how educational steps must be taken to protect these online as we do offline: would we hand the keys of our house to someone we don’t know well?
