The sharing of information has become almost commonplace in today’s
society from texting to Twitter, people are sharing their thoughts and
whereabouts thousands of times a day. Many organizations are taking interest in this information to help them carry out their directives.
Employees have been fired (or not hired) as a result of Tweets and
Facebook® posts, prosecutors and police are tracking down criminals
using social media, and criminals have been put behind bars based on
their texts and cell phone location records. Despite this, many people still believe that they have their privacy.
What are your rights with regards to the information that you post or
text? Does your level of privacy increase depending on your network/cell
phone provider? The social media site that you are using? Explain.
