Many of us think that Facebook is just a social networking site and it doesn’t matter if we just don’t care about our Facebook Privacy Settings on it. I request you to think twice before even thinking that way. The main reason why I am saying this is because I got an email from one of my reader and he told me about the incident which happened to his girlfriend and to be frank I was shocked to hear that. It’s not just what they were faced this type of incident can happen to anyone. I am going to tell you what really happened but I am not going to mention anyone’s name due to Privacy reasons.

John and Lisa are in a relationship from last 3 years. This story happened when Facebook Introduced Facebook Timeline and made Facebook Timeline covers public. Many of the facebook users ignored privacy settings and added their pictures on Facebook Timeline covers. Same thing Lisa did.
After few months she hears from her Facebook friend that they have seen her photoshopped photo on a Porn site. Lisa was shocked to hear that and instantly she told this to her boyfriend. Both were shocked about this because they never knew the reason How her photo’s got leaked and are on a Porn site.
Then they searched and they found that her photo was also used on other Porn sites. Lisa felt like killing herself as she did not have any clue about what’s going on.
