Age of Blogging — Are We Safe?

I do and do not agree with Rosen. It is true that, in this day of everyone blogging, you will eventually meet someone who might blog about his or her experiences with you, but I do not think that one has to alter the way they interact with someone just because of that possibility. While there may be hundreds, maybe even thousands, of people who may blog about you and their experiences with you, you are still much more likely to meet someone who won’t blog about you. However, I think that there are going to be people who are paranoid that whoever they meet will be blogging about them when he or she gets back home; if it hasn’t started already, that reaction will probably start to spread among people over the next few years.

As for the blogger, I think that it would be irresponsible of him or her to just blog about the other person without at least informing that they are doing so. If the person is blogging about a date, and the date went badly, it has the potential of effecting that person’s life in a negative way. Thus, it is at least a little better to use initials or something when referring to the person.
