Hi guys! This week’s topic is quite interesting don’t you think? I don’t know about you, but it really made me think hard about how much information is disclosed without us acknowledging it. I have had a Facebook account since 2009, and it used to be quite open- not in a sense of strangers being able to see everything I post, but it wasn’t completely private as I used to accept almost every friend request. However, as time has gone by, I feel like my profile is no longer mine, so I don’t use it as much. In fact, I’m thinking of making a new one. However, if you try to search for me on, I guarantee you won’t find me, and even if you do, you won’t find any embarrassing pictures because everything actually is in my control.
Other information that you will find about me will come from either Twitter or LinkedIn, which is quite alright, seeing as I use both platforms for career purposes. Also, the information on LinkedIn is only accessible to fellow users of the site.
Put it this way, I have an online presence, but I’m cautious as to how much access one might have to my details. Therefore I prefer to separate my personal platform from my professional platform. This way I have more privacy and control over the information that is shared online about me.
How about you all? How visible are you, and have you ever had your privacy invaded?
