Social media has clearly become the main source of communication.
Look around you and I can guarantee that you will see eyes glued to a device and fingers sliding across the screen at a consistent speed.
People are like zombies now. Their bodies are still there, but their minds are in a different universe.
Feelings, agendas and funny videos are posted to an online site to show the world what kind of person they are, or in some cases, who they want to be.
Along with any addition, comes complications. Although the majority of the world is connected by one similar interest, things tend to get out of hand.
For example, there's the cyber bullying and cat-fishing which is defined in the English Dictionary as luring someone into a relationship by means of a fictional online persona.
People live in their social media world, of course they are going to take relationships that occur there seriously. Apparently, "seeing is believing" doesn't apply here.
Since I brought up believing, I will get to my point: not everything you see on the internet is true.
I recently saw numerous people I follow on Facebook post a status claiming that their account is now private and in order to keep Facebook from using an individual's photos and information provided, the status must be posted.
Everything on the internet is public. A profile photo can be saved to another computer, a status can be copied and pasted some place else, the list goes on.
Even private messages can be exposed if someone takes a screenshot of the conversation.
There is no such thing as privacy on social media and there are so many people that are unaware of it.
If you don't want your stuff out there, do yourself a favor and resist from sharing it online.
