Daily Post – Do Not Disturb – How do you manage your online privacy? Are there certain things you won’t post in certain places? Information you’ll never share online? Or do you assume information about you is accessible anyway?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us PRIVATE.
I am a child of a different time, when things carried out behind closed doors were not made public. But, it did not take long for society to embark upon dirty laundry because it brought in a lot of money. People loved to read about scandals, especially of the rich and famous, it made mundane lives somehow seem better, if only for that moment of reading.
The internet, i-phones, instant messaging and posting photos immediately is something in more recent history and although I do have the know-how to do such things, I am mindful of what photographs I post online. I know that anything I write or any photograph I post will remain somewhere in cyberspace forever.
Although I have created an online identity as Swoosieque, I do not use my real name because I value my family’s privacy – my offspring. It is the right of my children to decide their own exposure on the internet, and they tend to prefer privacy too.
