Just a survival tip: don’t share private information with a social networking site unless you know it’s trustworthy. For example, I use LinkedIn.com and have shared information there, but the site has a tremendous reputation and has been a source of significant help in my career activities. On the other hand, you might want to think twice before using another social networking site, Spoke.com. Or at least read the devastating reviews and warnings at XOMReviews.com. People are reporting that Spoke takes private information from their address book and uploads it for others to use, and other violations of privacy are reported.
What does this have to do with Mormons? Uh, Mormons are good networkers, maybe? Or need to be better networkers? Something like that. Anyway, stay away from questionable sites and stick with safe ones. You know, like Mormanity.org. (And a pox on the cybersquatters who bought Mormanity dot com after I started this blog – but my fault for once being too conservative about domain name acquisition.)
