The Problem of Information Leakage

Twitpic can be "scraped" by scripts supplied by SANS Johannes B. Ullrich. Twitpic screwed up their Terms of Service. But the data scraping will continue and people will compromise their locations from posting their pictures.

The PleaseRobMe site scrapes Twitter and a geolocation site to tell robbers when you are not home.

Both of these issues are due to people posting too much information on the Internet which companies and others can use that information any way they see fit. Paudotcom discussed both of these issues.
