In the digital age, is privacy merely a concept?  With the ability to universally share information, voluntarily or not, the only privacy realised might be physically behind closed doors.  Consider that now, with our mobile addiction, even that gap is bridged.  Strangely, the more communication technology possessed, the less “communication” occurs, but the more others know about us.  Human existence becomes digitally vicarious, represented online through manufactured personas.  When considering third party privacy, what others inadvertently reveal further obscures the lines of privacy and our control over it.  Sharing personal information rarely divides our digital footprint, but rather multiplies it.
