I don't know any people that post too much personal information. In social media, I never post personal information. I just post some of my gameplay and that's all.

To me some people post too much about their personal life, specially the influencers; it can happen that these people post too much when they are on holiday or at home, so somebody can catch information about where they live or about where they go on holiday, usually these people are out of mind. So, I think that influencers must pay attention to their blogs.
To stay safe on social media I, above all, have private account and I accept only people I know.I usually post photos suitable to my age and I don’t post all the time.

Sometimes the people dont recognize that they post a lot personal informations. It can be dangerous if you share your whole life.Take care of what you share with the world.

As for me, I think that now only bloggers posts too much personal informations. The other people do posts rarely and share only perfect photos or some important and interesting news. Personaly, I do a lot of posts about books also I share my opinion about something and sometimes tell stories from my life

Oversharing is a big problem in our modern life.Sometimes people especially teens are incautious in sharing and publishing . Even if you think , you have a private account , it doesn't mean your information will be there forever. I have my own experience, and I'm sorry to people , who were mentally damaged by bullying on social medias.Everyday I see how my classmates bully the wickest students, because of the photo they made 5 years ago.These people are disgusting!!!!Out digital footprint will be here forever, even this comment.

I think that digital security is an important topic for every person who is going to or is already on the Internet. Especially children who put everything on the Internet, they first need to explain what can be done on the Internet and what is not needed. After all, anyone can look at the page of a child and understand what he is doing now or is going to.

yeah, you hit the nail on the head. some people just post everything online because maybe they're not aware of the benifit and the consequence of posting online.

"Oversharing by definition is sharing more than necessary details about one's personal life to an inappropriate audience. I believe that this is a habit, a habit that not only hurts someone's social image but has the potential to destroy the career and socio-economic status." I wonder how many guys are aware of this.

well, I guess not many teens are aware of that definition. because the fact is there are some teens that still sharing their personal life too often. i think most of them don't know about oversharing or maybe they just don't care.
yeah, i also wonder how much number of teens that are aware of oversharing.
