Internet & Networking "A few months back, four geeky college students, living on pizza in a computer lab downtown on Mercer Street, decided to build a social network that wouldn't force people to surrender their privacy to a big business. It would take three or four months to write the code, and they would need a few thousand dollars each to live on. They gave themselves 39 days to raise $10,000, using an online site, Kickstarter, that helps creative people find support." They call the project Diaspora and have managed to raise $100K in just 20 days.

No need to do Phising or Pharming anymore, just use a bot to scrape the information freely—Facebook are certainly happy to give it all away and continually let more out without users being aware.


In other words, Social engineering.
