Question ! :)

Why is it important to use caution before putting any personal information on a computer? (example(s) required)
I think everyone knows the general idea to the answer to this question but this is my final exam question...so it has to be thorough. Any specific ideas for an answer please?
Identity theft, stalkers, contact with dangerous or annoying people, embarrassing information that might adversely affect future job hunts.
What have you thought of?
I was thinking of things like Myspace and how putting your personal information out there can put your life in jeopardy. Also, if you save something to a hard drive on a computer open to other people, then anyone can see your information and do whatever they want with it.
I'm just not positive if my answers and thoughts are effective enough for this question since this quesion is my final exam for my computer class.
