    • TEENAGERS should think twice before posting personal information and photos on the internet, as they might come back to haunt them, privacy experts warn.

      Young people risked losing jobs or being embarrassed by teachers and relatives viewing party pictures or sexually explicit images uploaded on social networking websites, Victoria’s Privacy Commissioner Helen Versey said.

      Ms Versey and privacy commissioners from the Asia-Pacific region and Canada will today launch "Think before you upload", an animated, online video warning young people of the dangers of documenting their life on the internet.
