  51. 51. A comment…<br />“This isn’t new, this desire to share. We’re just documenting our lives in different ways. Instead of diaries or scrapbooks or photo albums, we post pictures and blog and tweet. <br />Social media is the modern version of cave paintings. The key difference is the scalability. Unlike the physical and geographic limitations of scrapbooks and caves, anyone anywhere can hop online. In fact, that’s the point. The more friends, followers, readers, the better. <br />That’s how social media works.<br />The town square never shuts down in 2011.”<br />Mia Freedman, http://www.mamamia.com.au/weblog/2011/05/you-have-the-right-to-privacy-oh-wait.html/comment-page-1<br />
