#WFH The Internet Never Forgets!

In addition to presenting new threats to privacy, this also presents new threats to your psychological health. It is difficult to forget, forgive and move on when you are permanently archived in the Library of Congress. The Library of Congress has bought the Twitter files since 2006, and has decided to permanently archive them. Facebook has more than 3 billion users, and Twitter has millions of folks tweeting. The average social media user creates 70 new pieces of content a month. All this chatting and collecting is leading to even more analyzing because the virtual environment has everything on the record

Cultural differences will always matter. How culture is defined and influenced is more fluid these days, thanks to technologies and connections. Now, instead of being defined by your ancestry, village, class or job, you are defined by your posts. Social mobility was once based on individualism and achievement, but now may be limited by social media. The idea of controlling your own identity in different segments of your life may be flawed. Influenced by friends, family, coworkers and neighbors, the idea of the segmented self has become unrealistic. You are no longer in control of your online identity unless you are aware of how this all works. Most people opt for public over private settings because public are more fun, more open, yet because of that carry the risk of being used in unethical ways – especially since the open or public data is being stored, sold and massaged in ways few of us understand. New industries are springing up to take care of our reputations online. They may wipe out what is stored in cyberspace, but we can’t get our hands on it. For the virtual worker, the main point is awareness.
