“Kids are fighting and I need to go with my peace armaments!” This was a recent Tweet from Shahrukh Khan, Bollywood’s iconic superstar, where he shared what is happening in his living room with his 275480 followers!

So is the term privacy fading with the growing intimacy brought in by Social Media?

There are people who wake up in the morning to tweet before they brush their teeth! The advantages of accessibility of Social Media networks and the need to be present at those common platforms all the while is fast becoming a habit for an increasing number of people. You do not need a laptop to send an update when you have a smartphone and if not that, then too, you can use text messaging to do so… it can’t get simpler than that.

So with all these facilities available, the world of conversations, ideas, news and views has shrunk into140 character updates on  Twitter,  and status updates on Facebook and other social networks. While these networks have numerous uses and benefits, there are human factors like addiction and interference which makes things ugly. Imagine having a shrewd friend whom you can’t avoid adding on your account (I am sure all of us can name quite a few such people in our accounts). Now whenever you have a post on your wall, you will have them view it too even if you know it could be disastrous!

Another disastrous situation could be you discussing your work problems and someone from your workplace (again added out of courtesy) or even your boss finds it there! I need not elaborate what the consequences could be! And cases of people getting fired from jobs in corporate and politics are becoming legion.

So  While the  power of social media has brought a lot of sharing among people… there is a case for creating your personal code for  privacy, especially when over a million eyes are watching!
