Between surveillance cameras in malls and parking lots, and the thousands of smartphone cameras that are walking around, they say we’re photographed an average of 30 times per day.
I was looking at a photo comparison of the 1982 first showing of Prince William and this week’s event where the newborn Prince George is shown to the world. Both events took place at exactly the same location. Photos of the crowds are remarkably similar except for one detail: everyone is taking pictures with smartphones in the 2013 photo.
We love our cameras. And we love Facebook. Sometimes those two things come together in the most awkward way. Ellen Degeneres had a little fun with this topic and manages to weave in an important message for all of us.
I love how she used humour to make a point. It made me take a second look at my privacy settings.
Question for you
I’ve been doing research on who owns the content we place on Facebook and other sites. Is this a topic you’d like to see me write about?
