Do we notice how hypocritical we are with our information? This is how I see it. We as people post things online. It can range from Facebook, Instagram and all the way down to 4chan. So basically our information is out and in public. What we have learn from Teds lecturers is that people can easily copy and paste our information around. For example Tumblr, once you post a picture people can go around and reblog it as much as they like.
At the same time people can take the post and make it “their own”. As they can just remove the source and copy paste the picture. The internet has now become a copy paste culture or if you like to sugar coat it. “Reblog/Share” network. Another example is a YouTuber I love to watch. Someone copied his name and reposted his videos on a whole new account. People could see it is fake but the thing is that he so easily copy and pasted his videos.
Which comes to my second point. We post our information out to the “public” but then we also want it to be “private”. Do you see where I’m going with this? It’s kind of interesting how this works. Another aspect I would like to point out is how we so called don’t like giving our information to websites. If you think about it we have already given them our information when you decided to sign in an account using your facebook account. By doing that you are giving that website all the same information you have on your facebook. Sounds like a copy and paste to me.
