The Danger of Internet

Posted in What's Going On? by livelife7 on May 5, 2010

How many websites have you visited today?  What if you knew that the creator of each website knew where you lived and could see your house?   Well, in some cases they do.  Some websites have widgets that allow you to google the location of visitors.  I was very disturbed  when I heard this.  Then I saw it for myself when my friend Max showed me his blog the other day.  He was able to zoom in on the location of each of his daily visitors.  However, that’s not all.  Max could also see how his visitors found his site, what type of internet browser they had, what time they visited, how long the visit was, etc.

In today’s world, you need to be careful with the internet.  I am sure you have probably heard about internet safety thousands of times, but few people are aware of the potential threat of the internet.  Often times, people aren’t careful about what they say.  After all, you’re just writing things on a screen.  However, real people can see whatever you post on the internet.  You need to be careful what you say, and aware of how it might affect you.
