    People over expose their private lives and relationships on public networks

    This is such a great topic. There are certain limits when it comes to posting things online for everyone to see. The number one thing that I see is when people get upset or irritated with someone and post negative comments for all to see.

      Thank you for the answer.  I have a facebook account but dont use it too much:  I hate reading people posting everything they do or they think! as you say, it is getting very often to see other writting bad comments about other persons...

    Oh, I very much think so! It took me a long time to become active on Facebook. Even now, I have my profile set on private, and I do not feel it is necessary to tell the whole world (or even my "friends" for that matter) everything about my life, what I'm doing, and how my relationship ups and downs are going. There is a reason why, in the physical world, doors can be closed. We all need - and deserve - privacy sometimes. So I feel it is necessary to create "doors" in the internet world as well.

      Thanks for the answer LAstRoseofSummer... Social netwowrks are fine if you use them wisely, I dont use my account very often, but evertime I open it I find out that some persons dont have anything better to  do than posting comments with no relevance

    I think it's shameful what a lot of people post.  I know a few girls who used to do nothing but post raunchy and negative information about their families.  It backfired on one girl.  She was 17.  She posted so much crude stuff, that the state actually was called on her by someone she knew from church to check on her well being.

    I think it's important that people need to have a filter on what they post. 

    There are consequences to what people post regardless of freedom of speech.

    I've also seen where people take photos of others and tarnish them, then post them online and make crude comments.  What they don't realize by doing that is they are only hurting themselves.  Their intention might be to bully someone else, but in the end it's them who did it. 

    I also don't like the whole FB platform the way it is.  I stopped using FB at least a year ago, if not longer.  There's too much variety for my taste.  Mixing business with gossip and teenagers.

    Yes. I do believe that children and the younger generations tend to forget the dangers of online social medias and exposing themselves too much which makes parents to worry. I do hope they will learn as not to reveal too much of their personal details online.

    Thanks for the answers.  I thought I was the only one with this opinion.. I know persons than post almost everything they do or where they are during they day.  Ithink some of them just want some kind of attention while others are just silly..
