I rarely write about serious topics on this blog. Mostly because there are a lot of bloggers who can write about serious subjects much more effectively than I can. However, I have been noticing that there seems to be some sort of backlash against Facebook for violating the privacy of its users.
And I’m confused about that.
Isn’t that the point of Facebook? Isn’t it supposed to be a way for you to keep up with friends and family? If you add “friends” who aren’t really your “friends” and then post what color bra you are wearing, can you really say anyone violated your privacy? No. You are the one who put it out there. It isn’t Facebook’s fault that you “friended” a bunch of voyeurs and then gave them for free what they would have to pay for elsewhere.
I guess what I’m saying is that, if you tell the world that you are enjoying a post-coital smoke, don’t be surprised when the world knows you just did the deed.
