Everyone is trying to be “popular” on social networks. Yes, everyone. We always try to get as many likes as possible on Instagram or as many followers as possible on SnapChat.
Although I don’t use SnapChat because I find it very useless and boring I am on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. My profiles are not private because I have a lot of followers and I like showing my stuff with them but not everything. I love sharing videos, pictures and what I am up to that day but not personal/private information. My profiles don’t show where I live, who my family is (unless I explicitly say something about them or tag them in), where I went to school or what my telephone number is.
I am very strict about what I share and what I don’t and who I share it with. Although I post stuff on a daily basis I still think it’s important to have a “wall” between you and your audience.
I am only visible on the social networks I mentioned above. I don’t really do online gaming, dating sites or other sort of websites where you can share locations and personal details. Internet experts can already track up our life without us sharing our information so I think that’s enough.
