It’s just data

Generation Gap

Emily Nussbaum: it may be time to consider the possibility that young people who behave as if privacy doesn’t exist are actually the sane people, not the insane ones. [via Stephen O’Grady]

The persistent and searchable are but only a small percentage of the teenage online experience: texting, IM, and away messages dominate in at least my children’s circle of friends.


My kids are still “talking about things on the playground” and “smearing yogurt on a table”.... but if you don’t think IMs are searchable, check your google search plugin.  IMs are usually logged.

I figure dbt means Google Desktop. In which case “
My kids are on AOL IM” doesn’t matter. [link]

OK, but even so, I still submit that allowing the recipient to store and search the chats is still a world of difference from allowing random classmates, stalkers, and potential future employers from accessing this data.

My daughter saying “I love MSN” is ringing in my ears, while I tell the other one to stay away from youtube. Privacy is gravy.

IM logs are just like home sex tapes: they are private, as long as the other party likes you. Once they don’t, all bets are off.
