The advancement in Internet and bandwidth has resulted in a number of new applications to be developed; many of these newer applications are described as being Web 2. A web 2 application such as Facebook has allowed people around the world to interact together. One of the interesting aspects of Facebook is the use of third parties applications and the interactions that this allows.
Not surprisingly, the problems that exist in the real world such as theft, fraud, vandalism also exist in online environment, and Web 2 applications are not exception to these issues. This paper explores and categorises several security issues within the Facebook environment. It contributes to practice and research by emphasising the importance of security awareness for businesses and the general public in the use of Web 2 applications such as Facebook.
