Social media marketing specialist, Mitch Joel examines the anti-social aspects of social media. Joel explains a conflicting view on the web and the information we release onto it.
The more that info is released on the web, the less privacy we are given, for this exposes ourselves and reveals who we are to the online world. The speaker believes that this is counter-intuitive because it goes against our traditional human make-up.
Humans are cautious and often seek privacy from those around them. Though they are immersing themselves into social media, its presence leaves little to no privacy in our lives. Mitch Joel states that although individuals are eager to see where social media is headed, they are reluctant about revealing themselves to the world around them.
