#BillofRights - 9th Amendment - You Have the Right to Privacy

Ansley Ansley


Facebook. Livejournal. Myspace. Tumblr. While each interface is slightly different, there is one thing all of the sites have in common: people continually over-share details about their lives. We all have a friend or a contact who doesn't hold back and just lets the TMI fly. Those same people who over-share their own intimate details are also usually the ones asking invasive questions about their friends lives.



When people ask for really personal details about your life and you aren't comfortable with sharing, how do you handle it? Do you think that people are too willing to share information about themselves; more to the point - is sharing those TMI moments a good thing or a bad thing?

Obviously, significant others and best friends are excluded. Spilling all the details or laying everything out on the table takes away some of the mystery about yourself. When there is an air of mystery, people are often more interested in the things you have to say because you haven't shown all of your cards. It keeps people on their toes, don't you think?

I've had issues with people invading my privacy, overposting, and just being embarassing. I've changed some of my accounts and it's so much less stressful now that I feel I do have privacy, but it sucked because I lost alot of great contacts. Some people just don't know when to back off, and sadly some are so sensitive you can't say anything too harsh to them. I guess thats the way social media goes-all of the good and bad. i always try and respect people's privacy because I hope for the same. (Exes are THE worst!)

I'm not much of a private person. If you were to come to my house, you might end up telling me "to much info". I have no bearing on what I shouldn't tell anyone.

I'm not big on Facebook because people talk about things that are either too much info or just dumb stuff. I rarely, if ever, post on Facebook.

In real life I'm a pretty open book. If you ask me a question I answer honestly - regardless of if you like the answer you get. I don't over share on my own though. I only give info out if it's asked. That helps keep my air of mystery because no one ever asks every possible question.

I definitely think people today tend to share too much. Everyone should have people they can share with, but mystery is definitely a good thing too.

I think people who talk to me get the idea that I'm not one to share too much personal info, but if they ever went too far and asked I would just let them know I wasn't comfortable sharing that info.

I am a seriously private person. Too many years of having others betray my trust took a toll on my openness with people until I really learn to trust them.

I think it's important to let your partner in on important things going on in your life, or just in general.

I won't join Google plus because of their 'real name' policy. I am willing to share a lot of details on my blog, but I wouldn't want random people who encounter me locally to know them.

I am on fb. But I really dont post to much but I use it for some games or comunicating with friends and family only. But I have booted people for posting to much and stupid on my wall.

I have had issues in the past with people trying to ask personal questions, or things I feel are inappropriate, so I have simply told them I don't feel comfortable talking about that and either changed the topic or blocked/ignored them.

I was in middle school was all the rage and I had at least three profiles. I'd join, get annoyed and bored and delete my profile. I only have a facebook account now because my cousins made me one while I was visiting so we could stay in touch.

I like tumblr, but probably because no one knows who I am there so I can post more freely.

I'm careful not to give out any information to the general public, but once I trust an individual, they find out pretty much everything.

I tend to be a very private person and do feel that others may be to open online. If someone ask me something I am not comfortable with I will let them know. But, hiding behind an avatar I do tend to share more private thoughts than I normally would.

I'm very careful about sharing info. Nowadays it's too easy to google people
