Today, I received a different, but nice, surprise Mother's Day Gift!
Sunday, May 13, 2012
I have just learned that my sister has joined SparkPeople! She lives in another State, from me; however, I told her about this awesome site, the other day, and she just called me today to say that she joined. I cannot find her, yet; however, we both decided that maybe there is some kind of moderation completed, or something, before it shows up. I will try looking for her, again; later.
My sister is very much concerned about her privacy; not just on this site, but with everything. I, myself, do not believe that true privacy, even, exist any more. Most information about a person is entered into computers these days; and if anyone, really, want to learn anything about you, and really dig, they can, and will, find it.
(welcome) Sis, and Happy Mother's Day, to all Moms

How fun! Enjoy sharing this journey with your sister. It'll be a great way to keep in touch despite the difference.
The notion of privacy has really changed in out digital world. I wonder if future generations will learn how to keep their personal matters private or whether personal matters will even exist anymore...

Carol, I absolutely agree! I even try to warn anyone to be careful what they write on FaceBook, or any social network; because it can come back and bite them in their toodles! lol However, I also, think that in these days teachers, and Principals, put a lot of student's personal information into a computer ... their grades, dicipline, all positives, and NEGATIVES. So, I know what you mean, that they need to watch their language, their 'devious' plans (lol), thinking, like you said, just "things that they wouldn't want to see on a billboard' etc. However, in the end, I believe that people, no matter who they are , or what they really represent, has a target on their back (always havin to wonder, exactly, what is in the computer, and if it will help, or harm them, or their chances) ... info that can help, or break them, with their chances at getting what they need, or want. Technology is great; however, it is also our crutch. You cannot hide info, nor anywhere, anymore. lol

Before I retired, I always used to tell my students, "Never put anything on a computer, in an email or on a website, you wouldn't want to see on a billboard everyone could see."
