Identity theft. Digital stalking. Credit card fraud. Spam overload. These are some of the dangers of living your life in the open online. But perhaps you take some precautions when you give out information online. Do you have a special email address where you sign up for email newsletters so you don’t get too much spam? Perhaps you use a pseudonym or give out fake information when you register for news sites. Or maybe you don’t share photos on your MySpace site. Tell me some of your favorite tips for protecting your privacy online — and explain why you do it — and I’ll share the best ones in next week’s Your Take Roundup. I’ll also try to get some tips from privacy experts as well. Or if you have a cautionary story to share about someone invading your privacy online, I’d like to hear that too.
