    Are secrets a thing of the past?

    In this information age, when knowledge is at our finger tips, do we feel entitled to be able to access information on anything... or anybody?

    I don't feel entitled to.  I think this is one of the downfalls, however, of our interconnectedness.

    We may feel it, but that doesn't mean it is right.  And there are still plenty of secrets out there.

    If it is public information and it does not threaten national security then yes, Otherwise personal privacy should be respected.

    There'll always be secrets and people who hold them near.  Social media however, does make it easier to share what you have sworn to keep private. You may not use a person's name, but at the same time our friends and acquaintances will quickly catch onto who and/or what you're talking about.  Hold a friend's or family member's trust dear, as trust is the most important component of a friendship and the hardest to gain.

    No I definitely still tell secrets.  For instance, I wet the bed until I was 16.
