I pride myself as being extremely careful on those whom I call friends. How many of them would reach the lengths and heights you go for them? Thus, the number of 'true' friends I have are rather limited. As a result, when I'm around this people I tend to let my guard down. I think I'm entitled to have fun whilst with my friends without looking over my shoulder every five minutes.
As a result, one particular friend of mine 'Iye' tends to take my phone and tell the world how amazing she is. Being the perfectionist she is, she does it on multiple fronts. Those fronts include my Blackberry Messenger profile, Facebook and Twitter accounts. She does this on a regular basis and I must admit it’s really silly on my side that it hasn't made me more vigilant. Honestly, I just can't be asked. However, my father being the hip Dad that he is happens to be on my Facebook and Blackberry Lists, so he gets to see these things. He then takes it upon himself to spread false rumours about me to my mother. After finding out what Daddy did, I told him I was angry with him. His reply was "You posted hot gist for the world. It's breaking news which was ready to be shared. Lesson: don't leave your media organs unsecured. Lol".
Most people don't realize the power of the internet. Once something hits Facebook, even if you delete it, it still lies on their database. It could bounce back in the future. Don't let anyone make any racist or careless remarks on your Social Networking accounts.
