3 Reasons Why You Should Watch What You Post Online!

I've over time told a number of people that nothing is safe online! No site is overly secured, none, not even google, those privacy policies you read aren't totally true, this is business, black hat hackers are real and information is being traded daily.

Normally, our parents would say: watch your tongue, but I bring it to you today: watch your keyboard!

1.) Hackers: Yes, hackers. I know you might go like; yea yea how about you also tell me that sea pirates are still the hot thing in town, well no they're not but neither are they extinct, and same goes for hackers too. Actually, I'm not speaking of the regular hacker here that make good software for credible purposes, but I speak of the Dark Hats, those that misuse the knowledge they have as regards the internet and handling of its components.

Trust me when I say they can hell yea no matter how secured the site is, get into your account, snoop around for your "secrets" and bring it to limelight. And that could affect ambitions, political in most cases, also one of the quickest way reputations get soiled, but guess what? they've got nothing on you if you ain't putting no "fine" linen of yours on no internet vault.

2.) Business: It's all business dear, don't be deceived, all these your privacy we'd never bridge by bigwigs is just pure propaganda! Most earn enough to sustain the big platforms and afford being the top dogs by selling you out! Yes you read me right, the gather info on you and others in your region and sell it out, and trust me, day in day out this sort of transaction occurs as there are a whole lot of buyers ready to make purchase out there, from analysts to companies needing specific statistics and a host of others.

3.) Government: I don't know if I should call it the evil eyes but I can bet there ain't no angel watching over your posts but yes the platforms are keeping records and the government are keeping tracks. Recently Facebook released a pictorial chart that showed the number of requests for user information Facebook has received from governments across Africa between 2013 and 2016.
As you can see, Nigerian not only bests Ghana at cooking jollof, but also does her government bests the Ghanaian government, in fact all other African government at asking for a peep into your life, a whole lot of peep actually, I can only imagine what they would find.

My advise? If it offensive? Derogatory? Stupid or... and you feel you must do it? Keep it offline! Happy Browsing.

Don't forget to use the share buttons! :)


I know I'm supposed to write something absolute here bla bla bla, but I'm busy designing, all I want to say his, let's grow together, like couples with genuine love or something.... I don't know...
