Are We Sharing Too Much Online?
With so many social networking websites on the Internet, are we sharing too much? I’ve come across people sharing intimate details of their lives which I will not do. I feel awkward even to post a picture of myself online. But I see people post their photos and they don’t seem to care who will see those pictures.
My daughter is one such person. She’s always posting pictures of herself on Facebook but my other daughter, even though she post pictures of herself on Facebook, she had made her profile private and only her friend can see those pictures. But her friends might let their friends see them and my daughter’s pictures won’t be private anymore.
I can see the reason why some people share intimate details of their lives on the Internet. People can be quite supportive when another person shares about his/her suffering from some illness. And this makes going through the suffering not too much of a burden on the sufferer. It’s quite a relief to find a lot of support and many people can be quite supportive on the Internet.
On the down side, there are also many trolls and mean people who hurt others but this makes up the minority. Most people on the Internet are quite nice. I haven’t been trolled before and if I were to be bullied online, I would just ignore the bully. That should stop them from bullying me further.
