Blog posts, social media, the internet in general. Almost everyone today is using the internet in some way, and most people when using it sign up to some service or blog using their real name and details. So I got to thinking the other day, does that mean that the next generation of people ( the type that have been using the internet since they can use a computer) will have almost a life blog from beginning to end.
I believe it won’t be too long before these social networking sites won’t be just a play thing, I know that a facebook update can already be grounds for dismissal, but soon will they be necessary and a user will literally be able to blog or document their entire life into some kind of ‘mega blog’. Not unlike a diary, you could look back at it, read it, find out what you were doing on a certain day 10 years ago, see what friends were doing on that same day. To me the notion of someone’s entire life being documented is crazy, but not at all unrealistic now.
Would this then bring to light a huge security risk? Someone perhaps trying to forge identities could know exactly what you have been up to on a day to day basis, unless there are beefed up security measures! Just a thought, but be aware…we are watching you – now on to the Davina interview…if they still do that?!?
