    Do you use any of the networking/socializing websites. I see people updating everything including when they will be gone for vaccation, their family/friends photos.................

    Is it really safe?

    I use Orkut and update photos and profile pretty regularly. There are a lot of security measures that we can take to keep our profile safe... I never add any unknown person into my friends' network - this is the most basic. We can lock photos & messages from outsiders and even prevent others (Non-friends) from sending messages / writing scraps. So, the pictures and all personal details on the profile can be seen only by the friends on the network. Haven't had any issues so far :)

    Of course there is always the chance of someone hacking into your account - but this is universal in the web world!
