Privacy: Is there such a thing?

Nowadays, the idea of privacy is evolving. Social media gives us all an interesting peek at life, business and people. Approach a group of folks on their laptops or tablets and you can be immediately thrust into a group chat not only with those people, but with others on their computer screens. Not always optimal if your having a bad hair day or if you’re in your pajamas. Having fun at a social event and someone snaps a picture of you on their iphone and loads it up to Facebook or Instagram. Do you think they’re going to ask your permission? Privacy really isn’t private anymore. It’s a new version of privacy. What effect will this have on relationships? Can it break up friendships? Is there a such thing as having too much information? You decide.

So I took this picture last night at Menopause: The Musical. Hmm, that subject matter can reveal a few things about my friend and me. Did I ask permission to use her picture. Of course. I wouldn’t want to knowingly violate someone’s privacy.
