Do you think we "share" our life too much socially?

    Do you think we "share" our life too much socially?

    With sites such as Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, you think we're sharing too much about our lives that should be kept private?

    In general - of course we are. However, there is a large portion of society that is also very "social-network aware". This means that they are aware of the ramifications of sharing too much personal information on websites such as Facebook or Instagram.

    What is interesting about this is that these same people may not have been aware had those who came before them not caused problems for themselves by sharing too much. It was the people who ended up losing their privacy, or finding themselves victims of certain cyber-crimes who became newsworthy. These people ended up putting themselves out there for the benefit of others. Because of their mistakes we now know how dangerous it can be to "over share".

    Furthermore, even though many people do not over share, there are many people that still do. From the young to the nieve. They continue to share their personal information or "give" too much and will continue to end up the victims. As they do society in general will make the assumption that "we" all share too much and questions like this will continue to be asked.

    It seems there are many who share too much then regret it.  We must always keep in mind that life is ever-changing and our circumstances can and do change.  If we practice common sense when we are going through something deeply personal, we should stop and think about the situation and how it will affect us and others before posting it.

    Yes some people give out way too much personnel information over the Internet. I just hope it doesn't back fire on them someday.

    Yes that is true. Dangerous is not what you are sharing and are completely aware of. Dangerous is what you keep sharing ignorantly that disclosed not only your personal life but also more importantly your personal behaviors.

    Yes. We should only have a few choice friends who know us extremely well. There are some things that just shouldn't be posted on facebook. Which is why I have different profiles which helps. One account for my family, fellow employees, and friends. The other account to show my true self, to have fun and really enjoy facebook. We just need to limit our sharing.
