Oh, thats the trivial part of the internet. Insofar EVERYTHING you
published in the net can be used against you. Usenet etc. Thats not
your identity, but your actions. That you may have connected with your
name. So it is easy for people to see that you wrote nice things about
the Taliban and bad things about the "international community" or

I was speaking of facebook networks. Facebook "friends" and other
hidden data. Maybe there are cases where those networks are real,
academic networks in the US etc, but in most cases those networks of
"friends" are more or less random and dont reflect your real life.
IMHO it is the real person that counts, for advertisers too.

Best, H.
