This article all about a creepy app named “Girls around me”, what this app basically does is that it find you girls that near around you, and where can you find them. Like for example they can tell what club you’re at, this all because of we don’t make are social media accounts private such as Facebook, Instagram, and etc….. With this people are able to have access to anyone’s account and receive information about us and look at our pictures.

Based on the article, “Loss of Privacy: What’s the Harm?” written by Irina Raicu, the loss of your privacy is a huge deal now on the internet. After reading the article I come to find out that pieces of information people post about themselves the government, corporations and other entities take that information. It’s wrong what they’re doing because it’s an invasion of your privacy, it’s disrespectful.

    Gabriel Garcia Marquez once said "All human beings have three lives: public, private, and secret.". There is a part of us that we wouldn't mind the world knowing about us and then there is that part of us that we would only want certain people to know about. Then there is this part of us that we keep to ourselves. Unknowingly, the governments, corporations, and other individuals are gathering information about people that they willingly put on their social networks .

Based on the article it was able to explain several different ways that the internet has become harmful and a lot less private world wide as we all use technology. Often times we use online websites to buy items we like or social media to stay informed about other things going on in someone elses life; usually they require you to put in a veriety of different information such as Name, Address, Birthdays, Gender etc.

The App called "Girls around me" was available through the iTunes app store. The app allowed you to view the hottest hotspot, who's in them and how to reach them. it also allowed you to browse local females and tap their thumbnails to find out more information about them. The "Local ladies" didn't sign up to be assocaited with the app , they  simply chose to make their facebook or foursquare public or reset the default privacy settings. Basically "Girls around me" crush the option of your facebook or foursquare being public and plotted it into a map.

Social networking sites give their users an easy way to share information about themselves. However, many users are quickly finding that the information they intend to share with their friends can all too easily find its way into the hands of the authorities, strangers, the press, and the public at large. By tracking your online searches and communications, moreover, companies note, make assumptions about, and sometimes disclose more than just the preferences and interests that you openly express.

In this article it talks about the different ways of how our personal information can be accessed. The article gives the example of Facebook’s games and quizzes that access your personal information, as well as when you’re visiting websites “cookies” are used by companies in order to track what you’re doing on the web. One of the most shocking facts, in my opinion, mentioned in the article is that the government can store your emails and can be used by them, also the fact that advertisers and researchers collect information of random people in order to use it for their own purposes.

Now i agree with you this is an evasion of privacy and it's very disrespectful, but is there any way we can prevent from this happening? Can we complaint about this to the government and tell them to STOP?

5 years 10 months ago

This makes me think about exactly how secure my privacy or even my rights are on the internet.

5 years 10 months ago

You make a great point when you say that the internet is a two way road. Its almost as though we have to keep looking over our shoulders because theres always someone watching.

5 years 10 months ago

After reading your summary, people should be more aware about what's happening how information is being taken from individuals around the world

5 years 10 months ago

for the fact that everything is straightforward and right to the point I agree with your opinion."It has definitely been an eye opener how much the government, companies and even other people have access to our privacy lives."

5 years 10 months ago

I agree with your opinion for the fact it sums up the whole article in one . You concentrated on the important parts and supported your opinion. Not going forth with giving extra information is the smart thing to do

5 years 10 months ago

I really liked this. You went in-depth into how any simple task says so much about us and I thought that was a great point to make. This is completely informative and I agree fully with the same statement that spoke to you. Great work.

5 years 10 months ago

Thank you, and I understand because even when I was writing this it made me thing the exact same way. social media is addictive and shows you who your or from the real world.

5 years 10 months ago

I like your view of Facebook, it has grown as a big site to a majority, but I also believe it extended far greater than Facebook as social media sites continue to come and go. I don't think anyone cares anymore about the information they post, from my perspective, in a lot of cases people post a lot of the information they do to express how active they are, who they're with out of a sense of popularity. Obviously this isn't true for all people. I enjoyed this and find it very informative.

5 years 10 months ago

I agree with what you said because everyone is struggling on what they should and should not throw up on social media like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and etc. But I like the fact that in the article it said that we use social networks to help define who we really are.

There no collaborative classes
