Basically, it’s like constantly updating your Facebook status, which some people do anyway. So you could say:
Jane Doe is eating breakfast.
Then, ten minutes later:
Jane Doe has finished eating breakfast and is headed to the gym.
And people “follow” you? And everyone thinks Facebook is stalker paradise now!
Why would you want anyone watching you that closely? I thought we called that spying. I could understand if it were someone very close to you, like a spouse or a child, but isn’t that what cell phones are for? “Honey, I’m about to go to the grocery store. What do you want for dinner?”
Is privacy dead? I agree that too much privacy is a negative thing, but too much transparency can be just as harmful. And between Twitter, Facebook, and Myspace, we’re all walking windows now!
