The internet has open
new possibilities in expressing ourselves and learning new things. While the
internet and social media are great tools to use, they provide ways for
individuals to take advantage of people. The growing technology of cell phones
allows people to not only connect to each other but to their online profiles as
well. They share photos, videos, personal information, and etc. (Smith-Mason,

2010). In Scenario 2 a woman’s photograph was distributed without her

Education, 2011).
Scenario 3 could have resulted in
the loss of a job or criminal charges; the viewers could have been witnessing a
lover’s quarrel for all they knew (Laureate Education, 2011). All of these
scenarios are taken in a public place. Does anyone really have a right to
privacy in a public place? Yes and no. They may feel they have a right to
privacy in a public place but in this day and age, nothing is private. The
right to speak or make comments anonymously is protected under the First Amendment
(Martin, Caramanica, & Fargo, 2011). The exception to this is when the
defamation of someone’s character is made or reputation is harmed (Martin,
Caramanica, & Fargo, 2011). In cases such as this lawsuits can be filed for
