Another reminder that your public Facebook profile is being viewed by more than just your friends:
A couple in Australia has received the worst kind of wall post. After they defaulted on their mortgage, the bank who owned their loan couldn't locate their current address or email address. After searching extensively, the couple's public profiles were found on Facebook.
Since the Facebook users had posted their birthdates on their profiles and friended one another, the bank investigators could verify that these were, indeed, their defaulting borrowers. Realtor.org reported that bank officials served the couple with a foreclosure notice, and Australian courts upheld the process.
This just may be the day that you finally review your Facebook profile and its privacy settings.
