Hackers are people who sneak into other people’s lives and steal. A Hacker recognizes how you think, see your life configurations, and then takes advantage. The more Social Networks I am forced to join, the easier it is to hack into my life, steal my identity, or cause you or me a huge headache.
I believe, Hackers of organizations like AOL.com, Facebook.com, Twitter.com, MySpace.com, Yahoo.com, Gmail.com and Microsoft are inside people, the hacker was employed by these organizations or had a friend on the inside.
Hackers understand human nature, they know what the majority of people do, they can be relatively stupid, but see where the boss hides information.

"If you recognize yours, you may as well hand over your wallet or purse to the first person you see on the street."
Why am I Increasing Worried
I can feel the Indians circling the Wagon Train, every time another person knows my group of friends; they are better capable of asking questions.
Andy is a friend of mine, can you tell me:
"Where he was born?"
"How old he is?"
This is the confidence game hackers or scammers are involved in, they get a referral without getting a referral. They take a referral, I know Andy, or I know you, or we have mutual friends and you transfer your trust of me onto the next person.
Am I Clever?
I believe I am clever, I believe I am smarter than the next person, but I am also clever enough to know, there is always a person more clever than me.
If you do something clever, keep it a secret, do not share it with your friends, and do not explain to them how clever you were, or you are not being clever.
Brute Force Hacking we see in movies, is a movie, this is rarely how it happens.
When a blog is a business you have to look at yourself as a brand. A brand that you promote beside your real self. I am not saying you should be fake, I am just saying that you don't have to reveal everything about you online. Although I will say from an investigations standpoint all I need is a name and an approximate age (which I can usually guess by looking at someone) to find out all their personal information. That being said however you don't need to GIVE your personal information away. At least make it somewhat challenging.
