It’s 11:38 p.m and a disgruntled employee at a Burger King decides to post a picture of himself stepping on bins of lettuce for posting on 4Chan with the text: “This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King”. Unbeknownst to him, his “anonymous” post is not that anonymous after all. Many people are not aware that photos taken with cell phones are tagged with the gps coordinate pinpointing the exact location of the photo, sometimes accurate to within a few feet. If posted to a website which do not remove the exif data, the gps coordinates are fully viewable to anyone who sees the photo.

No less than nine minutes later, another 4Chan user had read the exif data and pinpointed it to Mayfield Heights, Ohio. Three minutes later, another user identifies the exact Burger King location.

He’s getting fired.” Continue reading “Tech ignorant Burger King employee loses job over “anonymous” photo”
