This is the 12th episode of the Social Media Security Podcast recorded March 28, 2010. This episode was hosted by Tom Eston and Scott Wright. Below are the show notes, links to articles and news mentioned in the podcast:

* Facebook is about to implement a new Facebook Privacy Policy and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. We put together a blog post of some must read articles on the topic.
* Rumor is that Facebook is going to use QR Codes as part of their Geolocation strategy (mentioned by Tom).
* Joan Goodchild from CSO Online interviewed Tom and Scott for an article titled: 10 Security Reasons to Quit Facebook (and one reason to stay on).
* Fake Zynga Toolbars Will Steal Your Facebook Password. Watch out for those “autoplayer” scripts as well, some could be laced with evil code…
* The Majority of US, European users (still) click on Spam.
* Scott’s blog post: Security pros use layered techniques, but so do attackers. How do you address employees using social media sites at work? Blocking access isn’t always the best solution.
