Every hour and posting it on the internet. Most of them post before they think which can often lead make them vulnerable to attacks. The term is commonly known as “bashing or cyber bully” someone, whether this lifestyle will be carried by future generations or the next generation will move on to other technological advancements, it remains ambiguous. So be responsible for every act you do on the internet.

What we should know?

Yes we know that what makes people entirely dependent on the internet is that it is fast, easy to use and reliable (at least more likely than not) technically, it’s a whole galaxy of information that people inhabit. Information does can get in just a click, waiting for at least a minute then bang, all information’s you want to know will pop up. It is a clear representation of the genius that is man.

This blog is intended for us to show how to be responsible enough in using some Social Media and how we should act upon the advancements of technologies invaded us. We must know that in the internet, the term “privacy” is just an illusion. Most people are ignorant enough not to realize that what they delete in their accounts doesn’t actually get erased. This is when the term "data mining" comes in. What you post, search or save on, the internet goes into a large storage or it may simply get hidden in your account which may later be used against you by the company or by the hackers.

Always bear in mind "Think before you click".
