Who can you trust?

In an age where everything can be taken down and used as evidence against you, where anything you do could appear on YouTube or become the topic of a blog post, where the funny photos of you at a party can be out there for the whole world to see on Facebook, Seth Godin has written a great post about trust titled Off the record.

Have you ever been burned by friends when you’ve told them something in confidence? Have private words with someone you trusted come back to bite you?

Do you think some of your friends would enjoy reading Who can you trust?? Please use the buttons below to share the post. Thanks.

  • Thanks for passing that on Rodney. It was well worth reading.

    I can’t really remember being really burned by friends, but a few have let confidences slip. Especially when you have shared something privately and asked them to pray personally. Then they have asked others to pray too, like it was a public prayer request.

    I guess for me the only person I really really trust is my wife.
