There has been a lot of talk on the news of your personal data being stored and shared with third parties that has been taken from social media.

If you do not want the world to know your business do not put it online.

Your governments can see you anytime they want, they probably know more about you than you know yourself

Talk about being paranoid now, when I never was paranoid before. I'm kidding, Tom. I don't put anything out there I do not want the whole world to see. Hopefully everyone thinks like that.

I agree we that unfortunately live in an Orwellian world Tom; the watching wet paint dry below is really funny, lol! And your comment about moving to the hills to get away is classic although the drones would probably beat you there; A truthful chilling write about big brother Tom!~Che :)

Sign of the times Cheryl, but we just seem to accept it.Even as you go about your daily lives there's cameras everywhere. And watching people through their tvs is something else. Tom.

Excellent Senryu. And I agree with you, we have been watched. Good advise. Thanks for sharing it.

Thank you Ravi, some people do not help themselves though and are careless with their private information. Tom

Great Senryu Tom, I am more worried about identity theft so don’t use social media such as fakebook. Well written. :))

Thanks Roy, you hear of that so often but the government seem to do little about the problem. Tom

I know there's a need to watch certain individuals but we're all under the spotlight, a bit unnerving. Tom.

Thanks Demetrios, I'm sure people don't mind the trivial stuff being aired but are so careless with really deep and personal material. Tom.

Thanks Nina, spooky isn't it.They can even hack into some smart TVs now and watch you.Makes you want to move to a log cabin in the hills but then they've got satellites' and drones. Tom.

Not just a fine Senryu but a cautionary tale, Tom. Although new data privacy laws will be coming into force soon, it's up to all of us to draw our own curtains. Viv

Thanks Viv, love the ref to the curtains but you are spot on.But some people are so careless. Was involved in some missing mail years ago and we had to go to a paper recycling plant looking for evidence.The bills and letters I came across with adresses and bank details on you wouldn't believe. Tom.

An amazing Senyru Tom, one that certainly brings to light what is going on right under our noses,still, its not only FB. Read this the other day..... GPS-enabled phones Most modern mobile phones have a small GPS chip inside them, which means your location can be pinpointed to within a few hundred metres by the network of satellites floating in orbit.......Scary!! You bet.....Maria

Thanks Maria, wow that is scary, even though most of us are not guilty of anything it still unerves you a bit to be spied on. Tom.

What amazes me is the amount people who don't know what's going on.

Indeed Kim, but I'm sure if the terrorist threat went away they wouldn't need to gather your data. Yeah right.

I remember seeing on tv, a girl was interviewed and they told her all about herself, she was gobsmacked . Then they told her it was on FB for all the world to see. Tom
