Are you on Facebook and upset that people are answering those personal question lists because they are similar to security questions websites use to verify identity? Here’s how you fix that.

Think about it for a moment. Just because the question reads like a personally identifying question doesn’t mean you have to answer in kind.

You can put anything in those fields.

For example:

Where did you and your partner go on your first vacation?
The Matrix

What is the name of the street you grew up on?
Die Hard 2: Die Harder

What is your pet’s name?
Neverending Story

You just have to keep track of how you answer which question.

The problem isn’t that people are posting their answers. The problem is the questions were a bad idea in the first place. Hack the system. Be smarter.
