Almost everything regarding technology and the internet requires personal information nowadays, from creating an email, shopping online to signing up for that new social media account etc. Information required varies from name, dob to even location, and through this more personal information like your contacts, pictures, mails and more can be compromised.
This is the age of oversharing and people are trying to outcompete the other on who is living the more glamorous life or who has more material possessions and such tagging their location and revealing personal details.
In recent years before an average child is 1, the parents are said have shared more pictures and information of child than an adult had online about themselves a decade ago. Before a child can even make their own decisions, their privacy has been compromised, some right from birth and this begs the question, what is too much to share online, where do we draw the line ? for some the answer seems to be nothing, its an everything goes situation.
It is very very imperative more than ever now to be very cautious with what one shares online now as privacy is becoming a bit of a myth. People have lost their jobs, been attacked, bullied, robbed and so much more due to information obtained online. There are advantages too as people have also gotten employed, found love, laughter and a community to feel safe among online. It is a balancing act in which one just has to be very careful.
