Privacy & Confidentiality

I believe that privacy and confidentiality do not go well with new media. The purpose of new media is to allow other to contribute and give their inputs on whatever is being shown. New media is always taking place online and the internet is no place for privacy and confidentiality. People can not expect to post sensitive information online and expect it to be out of the eyes of others. Sure there are ways to block people you don't want to be able to see your information but there are always ways to get around any security. As long as new media is able to connect people there will never be complete privacy. This is one of the main reason that the government was reluctant to implement new media into their infrastructure because it is so easy for someone to obtain sensitive information and use it for harm. The government has been implementing new media into their infrastructure but they are careful what information to broadcast and what information not to broadcast. We should all be aware of the type of information we posting online.
