Heard through a friend of a friend that picture editors now search Bebo when they're looking for photos of people for news stories.

It all comes down to "Reasonable expectations of Privacy" By which I mean, If you are at home or in your back garden or in an enclosed private place then you have a reasonable expectation of privacy so your image can't be used and distributed because it's an invasion of privacy. If you're at a concert or walking down the street then anyone can take your image because you're in a public place. That's how the paparazzi get away with it. It's also why it's legal for premises to film you on cctv as you do not have an "expectation of privacy" in their shop. Google on the other hand would probably not have to take down images of you from their street level photos. The exceptions to this would be if they took an image of you through a window etc. etc.

When I was studying in England Bebo was the bane of my existence. I didn't have a page myself (partly because I had a blog and didn't see the point, partly because it was only worthwhile if you gave private info away) but most other people in the course did. Every night out usually involved digital cameras from all angles and after the first few times it began to feel like being stalked by some kind of ingrained paparazzi - by the end of the year I was covering my face every time a picture was about to be taken, just in case. Now I realise that few if any of these pictures would have my name on them, let alone my full name so I wouldn't be too nervous about them being found by a potential employer or something like that. That said, I still didn't like them being online because I never gave permission for them to be published and, well, I'm out getting locked - I don't want that to be broadcast to the world the next day. One morning the lot of us (there were 6 in the house) woke up to find that pictures from the night before had been uploaded on someone's bebo already. I was a little freaked out. All that said I also realise this - if someone were to read all of my blog, read all of my posts on and do a bit of general snooping they could find out practically everything they needed about me. But if I'm going to have a stalker, I at least want them to put a little bit of effort into it!
