My Online Self


I use Twitter, Facebook and Instagram on a daily basis. The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is check all three news feeds to keep up to date with what is happening. And I do all this before I have even got out of bed.

I have set up each of the social networking sites that I use to the highest privacy setting, as I would like to think that my details are private, but they are not. No matter how secure I think that the information that I upload is. It is not. The cookies on websites and the social networking site itself, has the right to keep that image or data that I chose to share with them. So no matter how private I make my settings, nothing is private on the internet.

Before writing this blog post, I was curious and thought it would be interesting to Google myself. I was shocked to see that images of my family and friends as well as my address were being shared on the internet for the whole world to see. This made me realise that no matter how much you think you’re being safe on the internet and how many precautions you’re taking, nothing is safe.
