No blog of mine would be complete without including my thoughts on the apparent surrender of privacy in the way society communicates today. Is nothing in our lives sacred anymore? Do we as a society not believe that some things should just be kept to ourselves or at least within our close circle of family or friends?
Clay Shirky says, “Social networks are profoundly changing the definition of what we consider private.” I have to agree!
The advice I have always given to my children and to my students is that if you don’t want it on the front page of the newspaper, don’t put it out there for everyone to read.
I have attached a link to a Youtube video by Clay Shirky entitled Facebook Killed the Private Life. Very thought provoking!!
