In the article of Social Network Sites: Public, Private, or What?, at the very least it portrays the reality of our current way of communicating and the way we represent ourselves through the scope of social technology. Our generation relays heavily on the realm of social networking. More than a half billion people use these social network sites to post vast amounts of information about themselves every day. Although we have people who are in favor and who have embrace this emerging technology other people like parents are still, only worried each day, some feel that this technology has only strongly corrupt and destroy today’s youth while others only wait patiently until this whole phenomenon dies down. Boyd states, “Today’s teenagers are being socialised into a society complicated by shifts in the public and private.” I think we all pretty much have become familiar with this option. For example, in Facebook, we are able to choose and block from certain people viewing our posts, pictures, notes, or status. This tactic has enable us to have some power in the area of our privacy. We are no longer held back from making our information private and not sharing it with everyone and although this could favor us in many ways it could also jeopardize us in the long run. According to Boyd, he states, “What you say sticks around. This is great for asynchronous communication, but it also means that what you said at 15 is still accessible when you are 30 and have purportedly outgrown your childish ways.” The fact that information is reachable with a click of a button can sometimes harm people in job interviews. This is why careful thought must be put into everything that we shared online. Take for instance, in Facebook, even though you might have a trusted circle of friends who are viewing your material, you still have those whom you have blocked. Who is to say that 1 friend out of the “trusted” circle of friends won’t bring up that photo album in a conversation to that other friend that you have blocked and who is to say that by having your profile visible, that other people won’t copy and paste your photographs or information. Let’s face it if you are on the web, every thing you say and do will always be accessible no matter how many privacy rules they are behind to “protect” your information, one way or another someone is behind that monitor watching your every move. Or how else do you think the media gets track of celebrity private photos and information?
