#7 Post: Online Privacy

We are trying to hide in an internet environment, aside from trying to shirk responsibilities, anonymity is indispensable for online and offline world. We post all kinds of embarrassing information about ourselves, but periodically erupt in a range when we feel that our online privacy has been compromised. Although online privacy is necessarily needed to be concerned about while we are blogging, “in fact, some experts worry that if people become too paranoid about online privacy, it could have deleterious effects.”

There is no other way to protect your privacy?

Being anonymous and pseudonymous would help a bit, for instance, if you are really concerned about your privacy while you blog, you should secure your accounts, profiles and details on your laptop or other devices, “call your government leaders and try to change privacy laws, or stay off the Web altogether.”
