Today, every single minute we can see people uploading private photos, or complete photo albums to Facebook, Orkut, or other social websites. The number of photos is sometimes more than 100. Everybody defends themselves saying that, its the easiest way of sharing photos and its fun getting comments on it.
We cannot deny the benefits of sharing photos on social networks but there are lots of risks or safe issues which we cannot ignore. people have never come to a consensus on this topic. What do you think? Do you find it safe to share your private photos on social networks?
The convenience of sharing photos with friends (and non-friends) through social networking sites and blogs is undeniable. Unfortunately, so are the dangers. Not only can photos be stolen and used by strangers, but many photos, especially those taken by phones or devices with GPS technology, contain tags that reveal their location, which means viewers can figure out where exactly they were snapped. In other words, if a parent takes a photo of their child playing at home and then posts it online, it's possible for strangers to know exactly where they live.
Stories of people's online photos being used for nefarious purposes abound: A mother in Jacksonville, Florida discovered that a photo she posted of her five-year-old on Facebook was taken and used to create a new profile, unbeknownst to her. A soldier's photo was stolen off of MySpace, posted by scam artists under a fake Match.com account, and used to con one woman out of thousands of dollars. One blogger found her family's photo being used as an advertisement in the Czech Republic.
