Social Stalker prank reminds us how scary things can be

What if a stranger approached you on the street and called you by name, and then started talking about things he shouldn't know about you? This time it's just a prank, reminding us of the incredible amount of stuff we share publicly on the internet and that is there for anyone to see.

Most people assume that, with so many millions of persons out there, the only ones reading our stuff will be our friends (what's the point of a stranger reading us, right?) but the fact is you're sharing stuff you'd probably wouldn't share with a stranger sitting beside you on the bus. So... shouldn't we re-think what we publicly say and share online?...

That's up for each one to figure out for themselves.
