Snooping

Social networking is modern day voyeurism. Whether we want to or not, everyone is spying on each other. People may not like, share, or comment on your content but they see it in their feeds and remember it.

Most online engagement is ambient. Check your profile viewers on LinkedIn. Ever had someone require a “read receipt” on an email? How about running into an old Facebook friend that knows about your marital status and last vacation. Creepy shit, sort of.

The only issue in publicizing information is the return of too much information. We don’t want to know what other people know about us yet we continue to share our information so freely. We build our own radars.

The days of anonymity are over. We’re all naked and famous.
