What rights and responsibilities do you have to protect your privacy on the Internet?
By: Shelby Schroeder
This is an issue that has come up many times about the internet. I remember back when I was in high school and middle school we actually had speakers come discuss how public the internet actually is, and how it makes you susceptible to many criminals whether they be sex offenders or people who are trying to steal your identity. While this can make our parents pretty antsy about letting us “kids” go on the internet I overall think we are responsible for what we do on the internet. i think we have to be smart about what we post and make sure that our Facebook is protected by passwords, and I think it’s smart to have strict privacy settings. It’s really all up to the individual, if you want someone to see everything about you, that’s your decision. I think it’s also smart to protect everything will good passwords, and make sure that we don’t go tell all our friends our passwords; you never know who they might tell. Overall, I think websites have the options for us to have protected lives on the internet; it’s just up to the individual as to whether or not we utilize them.
