I have a few engagements in social media. I mostly use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr. All of these accounts are used just a little differently. My Facebook is more for keeping close with my friends from high school or even junior high school and a bit of family. Twitter is used for following mostly game companies and a few celebrities that I am interested in. Also looking through trending topics are very useful to see what people deem important. My tumblr is basically my interests account. I’ll follow anything that interests me from games, anime, music artists, celebrities and even tv shows. Tumblr is also a great source to find amateur design artists. My Facebook, Twitter, Instagram are all private. I do this because those social media there is some information I post that I only want my friends to see, especially my instagram. Tumblr nobody knows me beside my created name. I choose these decisions by what the site if for. Finding out the purpose of said site should always be looked over.
Looking over the link, I’ve already known about people being able to search for names in search engines. It does not change my mind either way. I myself googled my name and there were other people that had the same exact spelling of my name. But am I apart of the google search I have no idea. I’m certainly not on the first page. Is it frightening of course, but it’s the internet. Not everything can be kept private. The best thing that can be done like the writer said is make an identity on the internet how you would in everyday life.
