No Updates Before, During and After My Party
On my next party invitation following will be printed:
I love social media. I post to Twitter every single day and to Facebook (in another name) and Google+ very often. I keep grooming my LinkedIn. I use Quora and I try out almost every new social network comming along.
For me it is not a question of abstaining, it is a must to participate. You have to participate in order not to handicap yourself.
However, I want to controle my info myself.
I, and only I, decide what to be posted about me and when and where. That’s why I really don’t like Facebook’s tagging-service. It is eliminating our right to controle our own info.
I see a horrible trend: That people take pictures at parties and public places of others and post them to Facebook without getting the permission of the persons they took pictures of. It is a bad habit. It is invading my definition of privacy, and I will ask all my guests in the future not to tag me or my guests, while they are guests in my home.
A Facebook-free-party-zone is what is needed.
Happy New Year
