ParentalStalkingBook violates privacy

Tuesday, April 17, 2012 at 4:00 pm

As teenagers still living under our parents’ roof, finding a place to extend your social life online has become more and more difficult. One place where many of us decide to express our social lives is Facebook. With the accessibility of Facebook, we’re able to post statuses about our crazy weekend out with friends and pictures of us having a grand ‘ole time.

As Facebook’s popularity is sprouting and more people are creating accounts though, our privacy is going down, down, down. One specific group of people who ruins that for us. Who am I talking about? Well of course, the people we’re closest to -our very own parents.

Wrong kind of privacy

Facebook or Twitter? One or the other. Which would you pick? I personally prefer Facebook.

Twitter dominates social media

Tuesday, September 13, 2011 at 4:00 pm

Can you remember rushing home everyday after a long day in middle school to check if someone commented on your newest picture on your MySpace page? Or, Christmas morning your freshmen year, when getting your very first iPhone, you bolt to find 3G service so you can download the Facebook app? It may seem like every year there is just another social networking site trying to consume all of our lives, but I feel like Twitter will remain popular for a long time.

Chain reaction: social statuses gone awry

Saturday, January 22, 2011 at 10:00 am

7. 278. 33. 1,892,907. What do these numbers mean? Absolutely nothing. Yet, thanks to Facebook, I’ve been getting nothing but random numbers and letters to people in my news feed.
