For one reason or another most folks don't seem to be concerned about privacy when on the computer (or tablet or even their phone). Computer Tamers / Geeks at Work have always used the analogy that putting something on the internet is just like writing it down on a postcard and mailing it out; it's open to the world. Even if you attempt to delete a picture or profile of yourself off the internet, it doesn't totally delete it. Google archives websites. There's even a website called Web Archive (www.archive.org) that archives the entire web. Be care of what you put out on the internet. With Facebook, since most poeple share most everything on the social media giant, it's a goldmine for the "bad guys". Be careful what you post. Another thing that appears to be growing in popularity is using the old phone trick. Getting a call out of the blue saying "they work for Microsoft" and "have detected your computer is possibly infected". They'll then walk you through steps to show you you're infected (when you're not). They'll then remote into your computer to "fix" it for hundreds of dollars and then of course you're infected.
