How long does my information stay on social networking sites?
The simple answer is ‘a long time’!
Generally, you can deactivate your Facebook or MySpace accounts, but this may not mean that the information just disappears. It can live on in archived or old versions of websites, or in comments you’ve made on other people’s pages.
Think before you upload!
Think carefully about the information you post about yourself. Remember that it might still be floating around for years to come, often long after you have forgotten what you wrote.
