My mom wouldn’t let me open a Facebook account until my last year of high school. She said it was dangerous and that all the “bad people” could see my info. She also said she didn’t trust privacy settings. She knew, however, that I had used a YouTube account actively for five years at that point and not only did I star in videos, I had gained my own little following who knew my first name. I revealed a lot about myself through that. Somehow, this is ok, but only letting the public see a first and last name plus a profile picture is not.
