Recently there has been a lot of talk about privacy concerns with sites like facebook and protection concerns with applications like Flickr.
Check out these articles:
This article talks about how facebook is the most appalling spying machine ever invented. http://www.zdnet.com...ented-8221/1332

This article talks about an incident where flickr deleted a users account by accident and he lost 4000 photos.

How can people continue to use these applications and websites serfvices to store their valuable photos and information and expect any level of service and protection?

I have to say using any "cloud" storage as your only storage without your own backup is not the wisest!

I agree. People don't even realize the rights they give up when using a site like Facebook or flickr.The default settings along are something to be concerned about. It would be nice if everyone was informed, but that is not a priority of these social network sites. The good news is that there has been a significant amount of facebook users that have discontinued there account due to privacy issues. The bad news is what new problems is google+ going to bring to the table.
