why be private?

First of all, i just want to mention that these blog posts have been a very nice journey of understanding different components of the internet, and also from the other blog posts I can say I have learned and found out so many new things, which I am very happy everybody shared.

One of the topics that i really liked and would like to speak more about is our online visibility and privacy. As we all know mostly everybody has a wide range of social accounts we use. O

one of the aspects which i think is important in the matter of online visibility and privacy, is how we teach kids to be safe on social media. There has been a big raise of the number of pre teenagers and teenagers that are present in the online medium and most do not have a private profile. I consider that is essential for kids, that have a lot more access to the internet than many of us have has, so an education in that sense is a nessecity for the to understand the risks of sharing data freely on the internet. I think that it does not only depend on the parents but maybe it could useful to have it in school as well.

Regretfully, some of us had to learn it the hard way…
