I know that there have been times on my personal account that someone has been able to see my personal information even when they aren’t my friends on Facebook. In the past, I have felt like my personal information was not being protected at all, I tried writing to Facebook telling them my concerns and how I don’t feel protected. I have also gone as far as deleting my Facebook for a period of time to make sure that my personal information is not looked at. When it comes to social networking sites, you can’t expect everything to be private; it is online, but when a website says that everything is protected and private, it disappoints me when I could go onto my profile and see that even if it is set on private that other people can read my email address, phone number, see my pictures, etc. Privacy is everything and with people out there who could stalk you over a networking site, that really bothers me.
According to hard determinism we are not free in the sense required for moral responsibility, and therefore, what happens cannot be affected by choices that are free in the sense. But what happens may nevertheless be caused by the decisions we chose and the choices we make. A reaction to hard determinism is that if it were true, we would have no reason to attempt to accomplish anything, to try and improve our lives because our decisions and choices would make no difference. If everything we do is pre determined then why try hard to achieve anything, if you are meant to do a certain something, it will happen, it is already determined for you, so the hard determinist would say. In the hard determinist’s judgement, this feeling of freedom is an illusion.
What are the benefits to businesses (and others) of using information technology for doing work tasks? The benefits to business of using information technology are that it saves time, allowing a business to work more efficiently and be more productive and also be more accurate. Information technology means a business can communicate faster with its clients, suppliers and potential customers.

Also the internet can be used to research thing quickly and easily, whether this is cheaper postage better quality raw materials etc.
Only one person was willing to meet him face-to-face. Hal, at that moment, realized that you can’t establish human connections online because Facebook is impersonal. You aren’t really talking to a human, you are typing on a keyboard. One thing that is missing from online social media is personal information. People do not generally post things that are important.
There would be nothing that you could hide or keep from someone. There may be an event in my past that I would want no one to find out about but that would be impossible with the ID cards. To close I just want to say that my privacy mean the world to me and to lose that would basically change everything about who I am and the way I act. Personalities would all be different. People would feel that they have nothing for themselves.
Technology seems to be subtly destroying the meaningfulness of human interactions, disconnecting us from each other and the world around us, and leading to a menacing sense of isolation in society. We need to go back to simpler times and back to simple communication. People tend to exaggerate the personas they portray because they have much more time to revise and calculate the content rather than a spontaneous face-to-face interaction. Some psychologists and sociologists who have studied usage habits on Twitter, Facebook and popular dating sites say there's little correlation between how people act on the internet and how they act in person. Not to mention, Face to face communication had been the "norm" for thousands of years.
Do I Really Have Join Twitter? This piece by Farhad Manjoo is to inform the reader that Twitter, although it may seem to be very popular, is actually a waste of time. Celebrities and politicians use Twitter to communicate with the public. For everyday people like us, Twitter is “not yet a necessary way to stay socially relevant in the information age” (Manajoo, 2009). The author goes on to point out that how we
Communications among people allows exchange of knowledge and ideas. Along with the development of communication technology, social media evolve and create a platform to allow effective communications among people. People always question about are social media making us more socialize or it is not instead. While social media reduce face-to-face interactions in real world and take away daily social activities, they also increase confidence in making friends and reduce distance between people. One of the reason that social media makes us anti-social is they reduce face-to-face interactions in real world.
When using such things like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube it is amazing how much people actually share with the outside world. People don’t even seem to find it embarrassing to share private, intimate, and personal information with others via these social networking tools. For me personally I can’t believe people don’t think that employers, relatives, and complete strangers can read anything and everything you post. It is really surprising that even though the wrong eyes can see what you write people still do not censor what they post. The same effect of over sharing information and allowing people to see every aspect of your life has been seen with the big boom of reality TV.
Even though the internet is not a brand new thing, this question was never brought up because of how slow it used to be and because of how many people had access to it compared to now. In this day and age the amount of people who use the internet heavily for a cornucopia of things is amazing. It has now become such an integral part of society that it seems it may be changing how our brains our working. When we do anything enough times it will start to affect our brain. If we lie all the time we will start to have a brain that is tailor made to make lying easier (Neulieb).
