The Social Network Issue

by Renard Moreau

Social Network IconsAlmost everyone on the planet heard about PRISMNSA’s super-spy program.

Now, since you’ve heard about the spying scandal in regards to our social networks, do you feel differently about social networks; I bet you do!

Since the controversy, many people thought about deleting their Facebook and Google Plus accounts, to name a few (Actually, there were some who did just that).

In my case, I have no intentions of deleting my Twitter account and I don’t want to separate myself from the people on Facebook.

In the meantime, we can limit the information that we post of ourselves (or post no information of ourselves) on the social networks that we are a part of.

If you have been doing a wonderful service of enlightening people via your posts, it would be unfair to delete those social networks that you have been spreading your messages of Light on.

In reality, we don’t need social networks; it is just a choice that we have made on our behalf to utilize them for the betterment of mankind.

However, the real issue is: the violation of the user’s privacy.

The choice is always ours to delete those social network accounts of ours. But, I have a strong feeling that the intelligence agencies can still acquire information about us, with or without, the use of social networks.
