How much about you would you tell strangers?
There very well may be persons you never heard about who know what you do every wednesday after school. In social media you share your life with almost everybody – but how many people actually are aware of that?
People, who have grown up with the digital world are being called a “digital native”.
For most of them it’s natural to update their Facebook profile daily. They feed the world wide web with very personal data which they would never have told anyone in “real life”.
Unicef shows in a video, how awkward teenagers react when being confronted by the information they posted online. Information they willingly shared on social media with the public.
A press conference these children weren't ready for.

Growing up online: What does that mean for privacy?
In the internet the same rules apply as in the real life. That means: Think before you post anything on social media like pictures, comments, trips, hobbies or personal data.
The safety of your privacy should be your first concern. Especially if you want to prevent that your information gets stolen, that you get get scammed, disadvantaged, mobbed or blackmailed.
Keep your life private!
