Do we ever truly have privacy online? As technology advances, we must learn to adapt to these changes. Privacy begins to diminish with these advancements. Every picture or blog posted becomes a "footprint" which will follow us for years to come. Although we may change and grow as individuals, images and words linked to our online identity can be detrimental to our future. Future bosses have the ability to make judgment from these actions that could affect a potential job opportunity. As a society, we must learn to educate ourselves in order to have a more positive outcome. It is important to teach students how to properly use technological advancements to enhance networking abilities and connections. Knowing how to "Google well" is the key to protecting our privacy. The more aware of what we post on the web, the less we need to be private. I believe it is our personal responsibility to protect our identity by expanding our knowledge of privacy issues and controlling what we allow on the web. If we allow the government to sensor our "footprints", we will essentially give up constitutional rights (freedom of speech).
