The image above is her current profile image from her Facebook account.
The photo, which she had posted to her Facebook account three years ago, showed up in two unauthorized locations. She was tipped by a friend to one location, on a dating site called sgGirls.com. It was captioned with a telephone number to call and how much it cost to chat (with a hot girl, presumably).
Another friend tipped her to a second location. That was even worse: her photo was featured on a pornographic website.
Rahim, 32 and a mother of four children in Singapore, aged one to 10 has filed two police reports, one for the porn site and the other for the dating site. She said, “People I know may think wrongly of me.”
An example in the U.S. occurred just this February. Police in a small Massachusetts town, Charlton, asked the FBI for assistance after photos of at least 17 high school girls were found on pornographic websites. The images were taken from Facebook and other social networking sites, and for the most part, the girls were fully clothed in the images.
Rahim said the photo of her in the bikini was taken shortly after she had her second child. “It was taken after I had a dip in the pool for relaxation. I’m angry something casual and normal has been taken and used in the wrong context.”
These are just more examples of why people need to put the brakes on anything shared on social networking. Your privacy settings should be as high as possible, and you should only share things with your friends (and we mean real friends, not faux Facebook friends).
