Private Parts In the Public


By Katie Porter

Sometimes it’s worth it to read the privacy policy.

Leaks of numerous celebrity nudes, known as “The Fappening,” hit the web and with a few clicks everyone could see intimate photos of Kate Upton, Jennifer Lawrence and others.

Embarrassment turned into blaming boyfriends or hackers. Apple denied its hosting system iCloud had a security breach.

As a 20-year-old woman, I take a lot of selfies. Even though they are clothed, I still don’t expect what my front camera captures to end up on screens everywhere.

Be wary of using virtual sharing for digital foreplay. Photos and videos still float around somewhere in cyberspace even after they are deleted.

Hacking is definitely an invasion of privacy, but accepting the terms of agreement for an invisible storage box is like signing your soul to the devil.

Your electronic property is no longer just yours.
