One More Reason to “Untag” Facebook Photos

Okay, it’s official, Facebook is officially getting out of hand. Not only do employers use social networking tools such as Facebook or Myspace to check on prospective employees, but now Oxford University has actually used photos as evidence of students violating their code of conduct.

ScienceDaily reports that “fines of nearly $200 are being doled out to students deemed to be guilty of ‘trashing’ fellow students — a practice that involves covering a comrade in champagne, confetti, flour, raw meat, octopus and other foodstuffs.”

These fines are in relation to the students celebrating the end of exams. Okay, come on, if they are students at Oxford and made it through another year of school there, I say they have reason to celebrate!

All joking aside, it is disturbing that University officials are using this website to incriminate the students. Although it is on an internet site for all to see, it sort of seems like a breach of privacy, right?

Moral of the story: untag ANY incriminating photos of yourself for a multitude of reasons.
