6 Personal Secrets Your Facebook Profile Isn't Keeping

IS there a good reason to add your boss and a bunch of co-workers to your Facebook network? You can probably think of a few, but there are also some risks to think about when you mix your work world with your online social world.

Even if you have your privacy settings on lockdown, there are a few things that are nearly impossible to keep secret on Facebook on the social networking site. And even if you have been very selective in what you post to the site, there are six areas that are still exposed.

While most of it isn't a big deal, some people may not want their carefully developed professional image to be skewered by information about their past, their age (which can be easily figured out after someone posts about your class reunion) or their political beliefs (all those likes for the Conservatives are pretty obvious).

This can all be avoided by not oversharing and only letting certain people see parts of your profile, but with the rapid rate that Facebook changes they way it handles your privacy settings, it's better to think twice about who you are adding and what you are posting.

The closet comic-book geek sat down with MTV to discuss it, his background in comics and his love of classic spaghetti westerns and samurai flicks.

For some people, SNL is still must-see TV on a Saturday night; others tuned out a long time ago. For the past seven years, one of the more consistently funny parts of the late-night sketch-comedy show (and the moments everyone talks about on Twitter) has been Andy Samberg's Digital Shorts series.

With Samberg leaving the show, Pitchfork collects SNL Digital Shorts' Best Musical Moments.

IF you just got a fancy new smartphone, complete with the capability to shoot HD video, you should take a few minutes to watch this tongue-in-cheek clip about Vertical Video Syndrome and how to avoid it. It's not that complicated, but a quick search of YouTube reveals most people don't know the best way to hold their cellphone when using their digital camera. What's the point of shooting in HD, if you are not capturing the video correctly?
