The Problem With Privacy


For the course of this digital magazine I will be investigating the privacy of personal information in the social networking world. Particularly looking at what it means for our information to be private or public, safe/unsafe, and whether or not a risk to release information is worth taking in the world of online job markets and social networks.

Problem concerning releasing information The real problem is now becoming what information we post online and where we put it. The more important information: social insurance numbers, license and health numbers or banking information, is more valuable information on its own, raising the risk from the start, regardless of what or where it it used. “With privacy concern, the focus is on the concerns that individuals have about who have access to their private information and how such information will be used”(Tan, Quin, 2012). Users and consumers are becoming more and more aware of not only what information is getting taken from them, but also how it is used. Is the information really that "privately" protected if it is in an online database, despite it being a bank – social insurance and licensing information are already valued at a higher risk.
