People get carried away by the latest trends and they feel the urgent need to feel included or accepted in certain groups or categories of people. That’s why most of us picked up social media in the first place. I registered for a Facebook account for what is seems a hundred years ago now only because couple of my friends already had one so I figured I should try it too.
Today, everybody has social media accounts. And it’s not just Facebook anymore. It’s also Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, LinkedIn and so may others. They all require personal information that we give away without even questioning because it seems to be rather innocent. Data about us such as full name, address, date of birth or phone number are collected by anyone who wants to because it’s all there. We are more visible than ever in the online environment and even if we try to keep these things private, it’s still kind of easy to target someone on social media and in a couple of days you can see whether they are at home, where have they been in the last week, who are their friends and family. With this being said, do you think that we will ever be able to not be that visible online while still having social media accounts?
