Privacy in the age of social media. ..i have a few questions and thoughts. Are you entitled to privacy if you post every move of your life on social media? I mean you travel- before the flight takes off you have posted yourself at the airport with tags of the airport- you are waiting to connect and You have posted yourself in the lounge.
Your significant other buys you a gift or flowers- you rush onto instagram and create a collage and tag the guy in it saying how awesome he is. You guys fight – you stop everything you are doing to update your bbm status with some quote you found on instagram about treating a woman right.
You go shopping in Paris – you take pictures to ask folks to pick one of the bags in the LV store for you so you can buy it.
Your husband or bf cheats on you, you call all your friends to discuss the matter etc. But irrespective of what they say you aren’t leaving him…
My question of the day is whether or not these people deserve any sort of privacy…. we are often so used to seeing their lives on display that we believe it is open for the judging and critiquing.
I am personally not one for putting everything out there…very few people know my movements or my activities and even fewer know about the intimacies of my home…. I am a staunch believer in keeping private details private and opening up on issues without betraying my personal space….
I recently saw a post on social media where someone called out someone I know about how she should stop reporting her cheating husband to her friends and I was like “Jisos”! But then I asked myself the question – when you let everyone into the parts of your life that should be sacred, do you deserve privacy?
