Confidence in Wireless Integrity Needs to be Trustworthy!

Social networking on wireless networks is open to anyone with access to the network.  Confidence in a system depends on the privacy requirements.  Confidence in a system requires a level of trust at least equal to those privacy requirements.  Confidence in any system requires an established sense of safety from inappropriate events associated with the system.  Like the little boy who cried wolf of fairy tale stories, ignoring warnings in systems with excessive warnings, there can minimal thought given to the credibility of that warning.  Ignoring warning warnings can be adverse to data integrity.  Designing a user interface with clearly understood warning text, a mechanism for optimal use of warning messages, and a vehicle to assure integrity are necessary.
