Presently, we probably all have more information online than we would like. That information might be bank details saved to a particular online store account, photographs of nights out, your date of birth, or address. This is an unfortunate consequence of current state of the digital world. However, it’s kind of inevitable. We will probably never have all the luxuries of the loosely regulated internet without the risks of having information taken from us. Many people are worried about governments having access to all their information, like their addresses, D.O.Bs etc. But there is a valid argument in the expression “if you’ve got nothing to hide you’ve got nothing to fear”.
Do we really think governments spend all day going through our personal details as if they haven’t got illegal wars to fight? The only reason to worry that the government would come after you would be if you’d committed a serious crime, in which case you’re kind of asking to be investigated.
And if you’re worried about potential employers seeing something bad that you might have posted on Facebook, I’d recommend not posting it on Facebook.
