We have all heard the reports on the news about people and companies whose reputation has been ruined by Facebook or Google. Thankfully Facebook has instituted systems that allow people to quickly gain control of their security and image by simply changing settings and un-tagging themselves from pictures. However, for a majority of people the issue still continues as they don’t use those features.
