Trend Micro analyzes my own use of one social networking site -- an experiment


Tonight, I tried, as an experiment, a little experiment where I let Trend Micro analyze my “privacy” in my use of Google+.  I suppose it will give similar reports for Facebook and Twitter, but I’ll have to look into that.
  
The report suggested I was quite exposed.  But in my circumstances, I never post anything on any social media site that it isn’t OK for anyone to see.  But not everyone is in those circumstances.  I am “retired” and not in a circumstance where this could conflict with any job now.
   
But in fact, practically all journalists have their own social media feeds, and practically have to follow the same “rules”.
