Cheating boyfriend? Unfaithful wife? Or maybe you’re just plain nosy. Whatever category you fit in the web has just sunk to all time low. While trying to access the myspace homepage, I accidentally made a typo and wound up on a rather interesting and at the same time disturbing page. A site entitled Private Profile Spy is what I landed on and suddenly I was bombarded with information that just plain creeped me out. According to this page there is a tool you can use to read Myspace profiles that the user has set to private.My first inclination was to feel violated and after that I was all out disgusted with the lengths people go to to retrieve information. What really got me was that there was a line or two about how great this service is if you believe your partner is “myspacing” behind your back. Now I don’t exactly know what that mean, but I have a pretty good idea. In the confines of a relationship I wonder if this type of behavior is considered an adulterous act. Are we really that sleazy of a society or has our boundaries of infidelity somehow changed?
Before computers if you wanted to be unfaithful you had to do it the old fashioned way. As in going out and finding another person to satisfy your needs and hoping you did not get caught. Surprisingly enough the old fashioned way seems a bit more innocent.. There’s some sort of extra level of deception lurking in the myths of an online affair. Maybe it’s the lure of anonymity or what we think is anonymity. Or maybe it is the fear of being caught. Or maybe there is an element of risk and that pushes people on to do the unthinkable, or what was unthinkable until now. Although I still think it may be hard to hide something like this since most people have virtually everyone they know in their network. Once again there is the risk factor. Maybe that’s what makes it so appealing. The terms and conditions should be cleared to find on TaketheCoupon for social media networks. The interaction of the people with different people will be excellent and entertaining. The appeal of the person should be goo d for the person available on social media network.
I know if I want to say something to someone about someone else that they may find offensive I have to check all ends before making that comment. This can be an exhausting process and it makes it hardly seem worth it at times. Actually seeing what is on a page and breaking into a page are two different things. According to Private Profile Spy anyone with this tool can get into any profile. That makes the whole security bit seem a little, well, less secure. Which once again is on the level of disturbing. Why do we need to be snooping into other people’s business anyway? Are we so bored with our own lives that we must delve into others to fulfill some sort of need? Maybe so, but it seems that the cost is going to be higher than the thrill.
Sometimes when you go looking for information, you find something you really didn’t want to know. If you suspect your partner is cheating do you really want it spelled out in front of you? With details? Graphic details? Especially written all over Myspace. Maybe sometimes its best if we are left in the dark. It seems safer in the dark, as long as we aren’t booting up our computers and searching high and low for information that may just harm us in the end.
When we became a society obsessed with technology we gave up some of our rights and developed a set of rules. Then again, some rules are made to be broken. Break the ones that invade your privacy and respect the ones that respect others. If you break the wrong set of rules, well, just be ready for the consequences. If the stakes are too high and you can’t play by today’s standards then maybe you should get out of the game. Nobody likes a cheater but no one likes a tattle tale either. We must find a way to live without knowing details that have been deemed private. Or we could go back to dealing with infidelity the old fashioned way, with a shotgun.
