Another reason I feel it is important to truly know who you are, is too due with the issue that adanc2013 brought up. “The struggle as you said with what to post and what not to as a version of our own created privacy”, and “Thoughts and tangents we go on can sometimes result in “behavior’s we are not proud of, or we regret”. If you truly know yourself I don’t think that these issues would be present. I believe the struggle and confusion of your current thoughts and who you really are as a person will result in sort term thoughts and feelings. However in the morning one may regret having said those thoughts. I have made this mistake before several times and have come to realize that these comments are not necessary to be said and give off a perception of one’s self that may not be how you would want. One example I can give is a comment I made during the Toronto Maple Leafs, playoff game 7, “I hate Chara”. Chara in this case, is a player on the Boston Bruins, who is known to be a bully on the ice. I woke up the next morning and was very depended about the devastating lose, and regret writing that post.
Jamie Harris brings up a great point. “If someone who knows what they’re doing can’t, how can you expect people unfamiliar with computers to know how”? I definitely agree with idea, as I am not that great with computers, and am unfamiliar with all the different privacy setting Facebook and other social media websites have. For people like me, I think there should be an online seminar teaching users how to use these setting properly. These lessons could minimize the feeling of “millions of people have access to this information”. A problem agreed to by Business Girl.
