2P60 Response: Web 2.0 Concerns
Well here I am again. Now the topic is the privacy concerns that come with web 2.0. Personally, I know people are going to look at my info. Even if I don't want them to. Bad things happen. I try my best. Facebook I have set up my security options. I use fake names when online registering for things that I will only use once. We can't say bad things have started because the Internet came about. Things have happened before, just not in the same way. Web 2.0 is an entirely public place. You just don’t have privacy on it. Its public space. When you log on to your bank account, its basically like taking money out of the machine. There are people behind you or all around and if they really wanted to they could take your pin number. They just need the initiative and anyone can. I think the Internet is simply just a larger public area than in reality. Final thought, people in general need to be more careful and they need to stop being idiots (I know its a lot to ask but I'll try anyway).
