Facebook and LinkedIn Head-to-Head: Privacy and Security

Do you like this story?

With all the controversy surrounding social networking sites at the moment amid privacy concerns, just how do we know if it’s possible any more to keep our privacy and if so which sites look after our security the best?

A recent informative article over on, has taken a look at this very issue and compared Facebook and LinkedIn, to see which is best for security. While the article is too detailed to condense easily here I can tell you that the author focuses on several areas. The first being Privacy Certification, the result of which appears to be a draw.

The story then goes on to look into issues such as Privacy Policy, Staff Commitment to Privacy, Privacy Settings, Responses from Family and Friends and Track Record and makes conclusions as to who wins on each of these elements with the final conclusion being that on three points LinkedIn takes the advantage over Facebook, and on another 3 areas it’s a draw.

For full article go to We’d be interested to hear your views on this? Have you experiences of both and feel LinkedIn takes the edge, or are you concerned with privacy issues now on all social networking sites? Why not let us know your thoughts.

    I consider Facebook to be a consumer grade (toy site), and as such, I refrained from joining that community. LinkedIn proved to be more respectful and professional. LinkedIn may not have as many members as Facebook, but it offers a better professional network experience and environment. In my opinion, LinkedIn is far better for the professional community.

    LinkedIn is profession network-based. This is different from the social network based Facebook.
