There's a Chinese proverb I've always liked for my own self-censorship:
"You want no one to know it?... Then don't do it."

Being possibly the only person in the universe that doesn't have a twitter account, a facebook page, a myspace page or anything else like that (other than a linkedin page), I had actually not thought about this at all.


Nah... you're not alone there although I'm always conscious of those things and the impact they can have.

Without trying to derail the editorial, I really did think my wife and I were pretty much alone in the non-facebook (etc) world. Family and friends are always telling us that we "need" to get onto Facebook, but I really don't see the point. After spending 8-10 hours per day on the computer, coding my little heart out, I just don't want to spend the extra time updating everyone on what I had for lunch and what time I went to the toilet!!!!

Seriously, facebookers, your lives are not that interesting.

That's not why I don't get on those sites. I'm one of those folks that are absolutely paranoid about protecting my personal identity... and all of those social networking sites are not exactly on the up-and-up in protecting my identity, so I don't go to them.

It's really just the old game with somewhat different stakes.

You don't say publicly or to unknown individuals, any thing you wish to remain quiet. Politicians for years have used 'off the record' to reporters, sometimes this was respected, sometimes not. It's a matter of thinking before you speak.

Same rule of thumb applies but the stakes are much higher. Be careful who you are speaking to; the tools for spreading gossip can be much more devestating these days.

The sites themselves aren't the problem, it's how much the user decides to put out there for consumption. It's not hard to put in dummy data for profile and still make sure of the site/app.

I have two daughters in their 20s and my neighbor has two kids in their late teens. The issue is that today's youth don't fully understand privacy. With all of the social media out there and smart phones putting contacts at their 'fingertips', they are sharing everything immediately and all the time. Just look at Facebook - you can see people posting what they are doing from the moment they wake up until they go to sleep - 'just brushed my teeth, got rid of that dragon breath LOL'

This is the new 'open source' war. Back in the beginning, programmers felt that all software should be free and available to anyone who wanted it. They fought anyone who felt that software should be copyrighted and purchased. Today's youth are the same way, information should be free and available to any one at all times and it doesn't matter what that information is. There are no secrets with social media.
