  5. Hi guys, I found another article about Google.
    This article says that Gmail users shouldn’t expect privacy.

    According to this article, Google said that,
    “Just as a sender of a letter to a business colleague cannot be surprised that the recipient’s assistant opens the letter, people who use web-based email today cannot be surprised if their emails are processed by the recipient’s [email provider] in the course of delivery. Indeed, ‘a person has no legitimate expectation of privacy in information he voluntarily turns over to third parties.'”

    What do you think about this?

    • I think all of the internet users shouldn’t expect privacy, not only email users. Especially, SNS users have no privacy.

    • I agree with them. It means our lives already open to the cyber world. For keeping the privacy, we should safe our information by ourselves.

  6. Thank you for attending my RC.

    We think that we who use internet have to protect our personal information by ourselves.
    For example, we often upload our information on Facebook or Twitter and so on, but does everyone notice that his or her own information may be exposed?
    This is because we mustn’t expect privacy.
    So, we thought that we have to think about that again.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Finally, I appreciate for your cooperation!!
    Thanks!!

    • Acutally, as we did not protect our information, there are many accident happened.
      In Korea, we call “voice fishing”. This accident is done from many chinese. Nowadays, our information was exposed to cyber world. They used our information at cyber world. The purpose is getting lots of money. Internet is used to bad effect. For prevent that kind of accident, we should be careful when we post some information in the internet.

      Thank you so much. It was great article.
