Most people can’t survive even one day without the internet. Our modern society is dependent on the web, which is a direct consequence of the evolution and development of our world. Every day we go online without realizing what impact the internet has both on us and our whole existence. The internet is something great and unique, but we have to ask ourselves what we have sacrificed in the name of this privilege.
This is something that all Internet users are probably clear about, especially if they have active profiles on social networks like Facebook and Twitter. Today, we rely heavily on online networks to give us information, entertainment, products, etc. This dependence means that we must reveal more personal information about ourselves (contact details, credit card numbers, etc.). Even if you have nothing to do with these social networking sites, your photos and other information can easily end up on Facebook, but how? The answer is simple, as long as you have friends who are active on these sites, they can always share something about you that is accessible to the whole world. You were at a party last night and your photo has been uploaded to someone’s profile? Or perhaps you signed up for newsletters, online shopping etc. Who said that all these companies keep your data confidential?
