People often assume that privacy is something that only exists in certain cases. Individuals tend to operate in a manner that suggests that if they do not share certain details about themselves with the general public, their lives are private. However, this is not the case. In modern society, people consider privacy to be a precious asset, but it is often sacrificed in order to achieve other goals. I don’t mind having my privacy compromised in exchange for faster and more efficient communication. I believe that’s because I’m not very serious about many things. I do have a few secrets that I’m unwilling to share with the general public, so I would probably avoid doing so at family business. As long as other people’s private lives are kept private, I don’t feel threatened. At some point, people who were once fans of their role models began to sacrifice their privacy in order to become famous and gain more recognition. Doing so was done in order to make themselves more famous and gain more notoriety.
In order to create a brand, people often sacrifice their privacy by giving up various details about themselves, such as their personal relationships and financial transactions. They also give up the ability to create a personalized brand by sharing their personal information with the general public. They also surrender their personal information to those following them on social media platforms, which compromises their privacy for money and social influence. People sacrifice their privacy by enabling apps to collect and use data such as their location, internet cache, and browser history. Some of the reasons why people do this are to receive advertisements, protect themselves from unauthorized access, and ensure that they have the necessary passwords for their various accounts. Unfortunately, people tend to overstate the amount of privacy that they actually have. In today’s technological age, it is not acceptable to compromise one’s privacy for the sake of having my profile extended and where I want it to go. Privacy is a fundamental component of modern society, and it is inevitable that people sacrifice it.
My phone number is also in numerous locations on the internet, as these platforms require it in order to sign-up. My full name appears on numerous profiles, as the information that matches my US citizenship status must align with my surname to protect me from fraud. There are many benefits to having a full name on various profiles, such as gaining access to social programs and community membership. However, doing so comes with a certain amount of risk, as it can be used by the general public to invade my privacy. In some cases, I can manage my own profiles and decide not to have my privacy invaded by Google searches. I don’t want to share my personal information with the public so I navigate through spaces that are free from it. Even if I have disabled the various features on my profile, people will still be able to find me through my email or phone number. My IP address is also linked to the accounts I follow and the ones I sign-in to. In an ideal world, having two lives would allow me to be both a public and private person. Unfortunately, in today’s world, having both of these lives is almost impossible.
