I don't understand why people are so afraid of this type of technology, to be honest.
I think that more and more, people are forgetting about personal responsibility, or at least, know how to behave.
Facebook would never know my masturbation habits (like another post stated), nor about my personal stuff. Sure, they could have my phone number and
e-mail address, but if I'm careful when using those tools, they don't have much on me, do they?
If people are angry because their nude pictures got spread all over the internet, if people are angry that they private secrets were disclosed, then
they should have thought of that before taking such pictures, and having such conversations online.
If I don't want anyone to know about what I'm talking about to a friend, I talk to that friend in person, not online. And if the person is away or
at a long distance, I just wait to meet that person to talk about certain subjects.
People assume it's okay to disclose very private information online, and then they complain it's the system that is out to get them.
If anyone doesn't agree with Facebook, Gmail or any of those online tools, then stop using them.
However, if people want to use them, they should know what they are giving up, or at least, what kind of risks they are vulnerable to...
People are responsible enough not to yell in a public place that they have done something intimate. Why should they do the same online?
