Take This Lollipop - Watch Him Stalking You

For someone whose passion is researching security awareness technologies, I'm stunned I have not come across "Take This Lollipop" sooner, what I now consider one of the most effective security awareness videos I have seen. Released in October, 2011 and developed by Jason Zada, the short video teaches people on the dangers of sharing too much information on Facebook or other social networking sites, especially for teens and younger kids. What makes Jason's approach so brilliant is the video dynamically embeds the viewers personal Facebook information in the video. You literally see a creepy stalker reading your Facebook page, reviewing all of your personal pictures, finding your home on Google Maps, and ultimately driving his car to personally meet you.

What makes this training so engaging is the video is about how someone is stalking YOU, the video makes it very personal. For the video to work you will have to let it access your Facebook account. Shouts out to Tim Harwood for pointing this out to me. Learn more at http://www.takethislollipop.com/.
