it is YOUR privacy

Does your privacy concern you? On the internet, we are hidden at times by user names and feel secure. But what is this privacy we speak of? It is a question that, unfortunately, has multiple answers depending on where in the world you live, what you do for a living, and sadly what you are doing online.

For example, if you become a celebrity, you are fewer rights at events when it comes to people taking your picture, than a relative taking a child to the playground has around views. The minor child has different rates than the Aunt or Uncle walking them to the park.

The concept of privacy is a slippery slope. First off, it has generational differences. It has technological gaps, and it has social differences. Each of those makes the concept of privacy much harder to consider.

  • If the police in determining who committed a crime, get a picture of that video they use to prove that the person committed the crime, do I still own my image?
  • I walk my dogs every day. We pass 20 or so home security cameras. I would say on any given day, 12 or fewer capture my image. But those images are still on the recording of the security system do I own that image?
  •  Is there a 4th wall of privacy? For example, if someone sends you unsolicited messages on a social media platform, you are not connected to that person on, is that violating your privacy?
  • The last and most interesting question, how do you perceive privacy? What does it mean to you?

Privacy is an interesting question. It is not something that many governments even thought about 30 years ago. GDPR (General Data Protection Requirements) are the laws passed by the EU to begin the concept of providing a framework for what your privacy means legally. The US has laws around privacy as well.

In all cases, if you commit a crime, you waive your right to privacy.

(4th wall is a TV and movie term, it is where an actor talks directly to the audience, i.e., the camera its called breaking the 4th wall).

Over the last month, I have been picking authors that comment on my posts a few times a week and going back to their oldest posts and sharing them. It is my way of saying thank you to the people that often comment on my posts. Some of the earliest posts on the site have a lot more views than some of the newer ones. But neither here nor there. It is my thank you to the people that comment all the time!
