Do You Need That Selfie?

Saturday and a bit nipply in the Deep South……have you ever done one of those “selfies” that are all the rage these days?

Selfies are everywhere……every one with a Cel phone with a camera is spending their time taking photos……why are these pics so “special”?  But beyond that they are dangerous…..if you get hacked and all your nudey pics are found or worse yet……

A friend of mine and reader of this blog once wrote to tell me about how he and the men in his congregation had to go clean out the apartment of the kindly elderly bachelor who worshiped with them … and found lots of child pornography. They also found thousands of ordinary images of children this creep grabbed off the Internet, from people posting photos of their kids. It shook him up so much that he resolved never, ever to post photos of his kids to social media.

I read a news story last week in which researchers in this field said that parents who post lots of pictures of their kids to social media wouldn’t do it if they knew how those images were used by perverts. I just tried to find that story again, but the Google search for it is too depressing, so I gave up

Maybe it would be prudent not to splash your image all over every social site….just a thought.

Please be careful with your image and your safety…..there are people out there that want your information…..be careful, be safe……
