Facebook is the social platform where most of the information about me can be found. Information such as name, birthday, photos, country, city, university and course. On other platforms such as Instagram there is little information to find. I have a private account on Instagram and people who follow me can only find my name, not even my whole name (same on Facebook) and a few pictures. I chose to share both my Facebook and Instagram accounts with people I know because I feel more comfortable this way. A while back I thought my ”friends” on Facebook are people I know, and one day I was browsing through them and ended up deleting hundreds because I didn’t actually personally know or heard of them.
I am sort of a private person, I rarely share photos on both my social media accounts and I never post stuff on Facebook such as statuses about my day, a bad thing that happened to me, etc. Social media has never been my thing. I set up my Facebook account a few years ago just to play Farmville.
Although social media give you a sense of privacy and control, as you can choose who sees what and you can delete your accounts at anytime, It still feel like the information you provide is not gone completely.
Recently, I googled myself and the only thing I found was the college I attended. I guess that’s good, right?
