MYSPACE "bulletin" surveys compiling data and profiling users...
i dont dabble on myspace any more.. but when i did and those seemingly innocent surveys would be passed around...

the questions seem innocent until the weird ones get thrown in the mix.. right in between What color is your underwear" to Would you serve as border patrol?
and it seems that corporate america is in on this as well as you will find questions such as: What do you think of Starbucks prices or Whats your favorite flavor of Gatorade...

come on.... wake up...people are just freely handing over their profiles all in the name of social networking and having a stupid page.... brillant!

i looked up Toms page once and one of his heroes was listed as a man that use to use surveys to help compile dossiers on US citizens for the govenment.. the name has since been removed and I cant recall it now..

what better why to profile and learn about everyone by playing on their ego and need to put themselves out there on a page... let the info come to you...

saving a lot a tax payer money this way...

if you must fill out and forward the surveys.. be vague and humourous...

Pay attention to all the questions..... best advice dont fill one out

Exactly.

You have to be aware of that and plant false information on the web all the time so the usefulness of it becomes moot.

Im seriously considering creating personality profiles to post with, but modifying your puncuation and spelling in peculiar ways also helps, having a dictionary/spellchecker app installed with incorectly spelled common words is a good idea, you can switch them around every couple of months, so you have no discernable typing and language habbits.

I was aware of the trail i was leaving on the internet years back.

I have freaked members of this website out in the past by utilizing the internet to gain massive amounts of information about them.

Its amazing how much information people give up willingly on the internet and socially, if you take notes, catologue information or have a very sharp memory and lots of practice its amazing what information you can turn up after a while.

I've never answered a data mining survey because I always thought thats what they were. I never click on any ad anywhere on the net except by accident. All I knows if they come snoopin' around my site, the thought police will put me away and throw away the key....
