Digitalization of our lives has exposed personal information. As a result, we have left a digital footprint. We select how much we expose on the internet.
The picture on the left is an example of my selection to expose my own information to the software that I made this presentation on. When Bunkr asks me to connect to my Facebook profile to receive my public profile and email address information. My digital footprint has now grown as a result of myself allowing Bunkr to have my information.
Facebook makes it easier for companies such as Bunkr to use information selected to expose in exchange of convenience. It is important to understand what it means to expose personal information. Although having an email address does not seem big, a footprint has been created that links other information exposed in the past.
Exposure Selection: Digital Footprint
Facebook allows people to connect and share information without worrying about time. Someone can post a status on their Facebook wall one day and someone can see it a week after. People are no longer constrained on time. Facebook has also added a feature that reminds you of posts that you have made in the past.
Media Richness Selection
The richness of the content that we are communicating determines which form of communication to use.
To have someone meet with us in person just to tell them what the weather is going to be is over-kill.
Facebook allows for messages of the like to be communicated and to gain rapid feedback. It is simple to create a post on Facebook that can convey information that is not worthy of media richness such as a face-to-face interaction that is considered high in richness.
