How Privacy Vanishes Online http://finance.yahoo.com/family-home/article/109095/how-privacy-vanishes-online This article explains how the privacy of a person has completely diminished because of use and popularity of social networks like facebook, twitter, and etc. People on social networks put up their personal information not just their pictures, social networks, but also wall posts, and day to day events that are posted. Computer scientists claim that they can find out most of your social security by just gathered and reorganized information like this without your social security. In a class project at MIT, they examined 4000 profiles with link to friends that were gay. They were able to predict 78% of the time whether the profile belonged to a gay male. The FTC has claimed that the rules of privacy have not kept with technology, and they may be right. However, facebook and other social networks I believe want to rewrite the roles by diminishing the role of privacy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
