The thing is that today there’s almost no such thing as private pictures, private emails, or even private texts. Phones and email accounts get hacked every day–plus, honestly, how many times have you simply lost a cell phone? Probably more than once. And if you had private stuff on there . . . let’s just say it’s not so private anymore.
Plus, because of the Patriot Act which started after 9/11, the government keeps a record of every text message you send (seriously, everything–the bad jokes you send to your friends, the maybe very sexy texts you send to a certain someone–everything). It doesn’t matter if you delete those texts from your phone right after sending them, because a record is still being kept on some mega computer owned by the government.I’m not saying you can’t be bad once in a while–heaven knows I’m not perfect–but don’t be a dummy about it. If you have something to say that you’d never want the world to know about? Say it in person or actually dial up the person you need to talk to and use your voice to tell them. If you want to be sexy and a little naughty, but would be mortified if say, your grandmother saw what you were doing? Do that in person too, or take a Polaroid if you really have to have a pic–physical photos are harder to spread around than digital ones! Same goes for crazy party pics. If you’d get in trouble for doing . . . whatever the heck it is you’re doing, DO NOT photograph it, post to Facebook about it, text anybody about it, or anything else!
Common sense, girls. Common sense.
Have you ever gotten in trouble because of something you had on your phone, texted, or put in Facebook? Tell me all about it in the comments!
