Social Media & Privacy

As we go on in the solitary pathway known as life, it isn’t hard to believe that we will take many things for granted. One thing an introvert living in the United States or any Western nation doesn’t think much about but knows they wouldn’t be able to live without is their personal privacy. The importance of privacy in a lone wolf’s life cannot be stressed enough. The introvert lives and functions better alone than they do without their space. That said, society tries to encourage people to discard their privacy regularly for the sake of gaining access to your information. They do this in a multitude of ways.

The most prevalent example of society’s attempts at removing privacy is through the use of the internet and social media. Social media doesn’t force you to give away information, but if you choose to use social media, giving away things like your location are well hidden in the website or app or else you wouldn’t be able to continue using it. Social media uses the user’s ego and sense of validation to convince them to give their privacy away. When people have their heads on the phone and refresh their feed every five seconds, the rush of dopamine in their heads feels good when they get a “like” on their page. a well-known video on the subject was released not too long ago that I will post here.

Many of these apps will often let the viewer know where you are located. Almost all of them will tell advertisers about your searches so they can sell their products to you constantly. It seems as if you will have no privacy on the internet. If you wish to have a comprehensive guide on how to maintain your privacy on the internet, I will tell you to go here. I wrote the post a long time ago but figured people could still use it today considering its usefulness even by today’s standards. With that said, I’d still like to list some of the more relevant ones for anyone who is new to The Solitary Pathway.

As an Introvert, these are things to consider when trying to maintain your internet privacy.

  • Do not volunteer information you think can be used to harass, intimidate or otherwise hurt you.
  • If anyone tries to harass or intimidate you, block them immediately.
  • Use the social media platform of your choice to fulfill whatever purpose you have intended for it. Do not be distracted by useless arguments and stick with the plan and purpose. Letting emotions turn into arguments lets other people know what triggers you and they WILL use it against you.
  • Read the user agreements as carefully as possible when considering joining a social media website to see if they will give your information to third parties.
  • Make sure to never share where you are located on your phone or in any social media. Find the feature that enables your phone to display your location and disable it.
  • Don’t connect all your social media together, especially when using anonymous profiles.

That will be all for now. If you have anything else you’d like to add, feel free to do so in the comments. If you like this post, please like, follow, share, and subscribe to Solitary Pathways.
