Caught on camera – and found on Facebook

It seems that UK universities are catching up with their US counterparts in using Facebook to police student activities. Oxford University is fining students who upload photos of post-exam celebrations that break university rules.

Sadly, this current "Facebook generation" will continue to be haunted by indiscreet social networking site profiles when applying for jobs, and later in going into public life. Hopefully their younger siblings will be more careful with their privacy as they grow up.

Totally agree, this will be the lost generation of internet privacy.
