My Online visibility is something I have always given serious consideration to, my parents were always wary of internet privacy and I remember when I around 16 and I created my first email account my mum walking into my room and telling me not to use my real name. That’s always stuck with me, the phrase ‘better safe than sorry’ is something I’ve always applied in regards to my privacy and visibility online. The truth is I’ve only got comfortable with the sharing aspect of social networking as I got into my mid-twenties. I’ve only had a Facebook account since September and I probably wouldn’t have one if I wasn’t at University. Before then I had Tinder and Whatsapp, the latter is a social networking app but the sharing aspect doesn’t compare to others like Facebook and Tinder offers some element of control. When Facebook first arrived most people I know would add any tom dick and harry which I was never comfortable with. The idea of sharing my experiences in the form of picture and personal information with strangers made me uncomfortable. My Facebook account is private and will always be private in my mind was business does a stranger have looking at my page anyway? As a television student Social networking is a great way to promote your skills in the creative industries so I will create a separate page in time. In the meantime I’ll stick to a having a private page and the apps that suit me.
