Twitter and Facebook

I attended a seminar a few weeks ago in order to get some CPE for my CISSP and CISM certificates.

The presenter displayed his contact information with references to Facebook, Twitter, and Linked IN.  He asked how many people were on twitter, and only about ten out of about 200 people raised their hand.

After talking with an information security practitioner that I really respect, she said that she doesn't do Facebook or Twitter.  They are just not secure for so many reasons.

I started to think - are the majority of information security professionals out there NOT using social media?
Is LinkedIn really that evil?

Ive been using various social media outlets for a number of years now and have been careful what I put out there and who I associate with.  Maybe that is the key.

The only thing I really worry about is twitter to see who is following ME!  That could be a daunting task if my follower list grows into the thousands.  Somehow, I don't think I will ever have that problem though.
