On blogs and all these other social networking sites, we quite often see photographs. Which is fine, sometimes we all want to see the person behind the blogs, or whatever.
My question is: When you post a picture, which includes people, other than yourself, do you ask permission to plaster their personal life on the internet.
I value my privacy. If I wanted to tell you who I really am, I would have. I would post my own pictures. I know there is no such thing as privacy anymore, our personal information is everywhere for people who really want to find it. Does this now give you the right to put other people’s information on the internet without asking?
I was horrifed to find that some of my wedding pics are on facebook. Why? Who gives you the right to publicise my personal information without permission. I attend office functions, and the next morning pics are plastered all over facebook. Why? Why does anyone do such things? I don’t want to be on facebook or twitter or whatever else people are on these days. Many people have no boundaries and share info with work colleagues, info that should be personal. Ok, you want to share your info, but please do not share mine.
I don’t want pictures of me on the beach to be shared with my work colleagues. I don’t want my wedding pictures to be shared with all sundry.
There should be some kind of thought that goes into what you share on the internet, and how much of someone elses life you share, without their permission.
