Ever since the arrival of the new technology (Internet, Computer), do we still have privacy? I mean like social websites like Facebook, Twitter and Myspace encourages people to post all the things about themselves. Certain people puts their phone number, address and where they visit can be easily accessible by hackers.

 

This time, Google has crossed the line. In this article, Google was taking pictures for their street view maps system. While taking pictures, they were collecting data like the username, password and images from the Wi-Fi network .The federal government told Google that they have invaded the other people’s privacy. Google immediately apologized and stated that they made a huge mistake.

 

 

I think that this article is a one of good example where our privacy is being invaded. In our days, almost everyone uses internet social media which makes almost everyone vulnerable. I really think there should be laws against these kinds of things against our privacy.
