But what information is it that is actually being "leaked" through Facebook by these irresponsible employees ?

I finally succumbed to Facebook

Clive on Learning

I hadn't intended to sign up with Facebook. I had no idea what to expect from Facebook and, a couple of weeks later, my expectations remain very fuzzy. Obviously I have a professional interest in social networking and am particularly keen to find out how well it can work both inside and outsie the firewall and in a learning context. In this sense I would like Facebook to demonstrate more value than other online communities that I have participated in.

Are Facebook friends real friends?

Clive on Learning

The discussion centred on social networking: "The explosion of social networking sites in recent years has prompted some serious reflection on the state of modern friendship.

The average Facebook user has 150 friends (suddenly I feel unloved).

The Value of the Network is in Defined, Small Groups

Vignettes Learning

Dan Karp wrote an observation on the value of the networks in relation to Facebook's growth, which resounds to me since I have always suspected that "networks have to stay small to be productive." This insight could save us a lot of headaches when we implement Social Networking inside businesses. To summarize: Metcalfe 's Law, says that the value of a network is proportional to the square of the number of its users.
