When I was about ten years old, I had this questioning app called Quora where it provides variety of answers for the your question. Before I even asked my question, the app wants you to sign up. I had a innocent mind back then, so I thought it would’ve been great idea for me to sign in with facebook, not creating a username, having my profile picture as my face, and thinking nothing is going to happen. After using the app, the answers wasn’t as relevant, and so I deleted the app without signing out. A year later, I listened presentation at school about how to keep your social media safe. Something hitted me, because when a teacher was speaking us, she said, “try searching up your social media username or your name to see if your face pops out.” As soon as I got home, I borrowed my parents computer and searched myself up. As if a blink of an eye, my face was there. I was shocked, and thinking of it from the passed, I’ve noticed someting bad I did. I tried to re-download the app and tried to sign myself, but there was no ‘sign out’ button. After that tragedy, I have learned you have to be very careful of what you are signing up for.
