Press release from: OnlyMeWorld, LLC

There is a growing concern over the handling of users' information, security, privacy, data mining, web tracking, and facial recognition software used by Facebook and other social networking sites. Most critics and so-called private alternative social networking sites today complain that Facebook and others collect users' information and sell it to advertisers, making billions of dollars. Although these things should be reason enough for concern, the sale of people's information to advertisers and companies is not new and has been going on long before Facebook arrived. "Nothing Is For Nothing."

The real issues people should be concerned about are: how much information Facebook and other social networking sites are collecting about them "Knowingly" versus. "Unknowingly," how this information is being used by "Cyber Criminals" versus. "Law Enforcement," and how all this information someday will be or could be used in a "Positive" versus. "Negative" way.

Regardless of what sites today promise regarding security, any site can be hacked. (Some examples would be: governments, banks, and law enforcement agencies who all have "so called" state of art security systems) Social networking sites such as Google+ and Facebook are open-door gold mines for cyber criminals.

Privacy controls only protect users' profiles from being viewed by the general public, but do not stop hackers, companies, and governments from viewing and abusing a persons personal & financial life.

Facebook, Google+, and most social networking sites today offer numerous privacy controls that somewhat protect users' privacy. These numerous privacy controls do not protect people from Cyber Crime, Big Brother Abuses, and Profiling.

"When you go into a department store, you know that the store's security camera and staff are watching you. You fill out credit card applications, surveys, and socialize. This is all done knowingly and voluntarily," explains Carlson Yamamoto, the founder and President of OnlyMeWorld.com. "Once you leave the store though, does the store have a right to continue to watch, analyze, and track you without your permission? This is what Facebook, Google+, and many other social networking sites today are doing, which is not only an invasions of ones privacy, it’s a crime!"

The obvious solution to address these problems involving privacy, anonymity and cyber crime is simple; no real names, and no email addresses.

OnlyMeWorld offers a social networking platform similar in function to Facebook, Google+, Linkedin, and Twitter, yet differs in its approach to Privacy Rights, Anonymity, and Protection from Cyber Crime.
