In “Web Photos That Reveal Secrets, Like Where You Live” Kate Murphy focuses on the use of geotags –encoded geographical coordinates in pictures – to find hidden personal information. Geotags, represent only one of many privacy concerns rising out of the use of social networking websites. With the emerging realization that it is nearly impossible to erase information that we post about ourselves on the Internet, and with technological advances and robust statistical correlations for aggregating and mining large amounts of data, even comparatively innocuous facts or pictures can seriously compromise our privacy.
