Student Voices: Is it safe to show your location online?
Amidst privacy concerns on social media platforms, SCHS students discuss how safe sharing their location online is.
Antonio Elloso, freshman
“People won’t say, ‘Oh, this guy’s here, so I’m gonna go here.’ People really don't care.”
Manasa Satish, sophomore
“Each person has their own point of view on social media and interests. I've never been cyber bullied (and) I've never had any bad incidents online, and people I know won’t do anything that bad. I'm not put in that much danger compared to others who actually put it more openly out there.” ...
Ryan Lee Song, sophomore
“I'd be comfortable just sharing with anyone as well because I don't think a lot of people really care that much. I've never really encountered any problems being online. It doesn't really get in the way of my life.”
Preesha Vaswani, sophomore
“I feel comfortable putting my exact spot, but if it's to everybody and I know that a lot of people are gonna see it, then I try to limit it because there's some creeps out there. You always want to make sure that you're not putting yourself out there in the wrong way. The internet is a place of dangerous people.”
Alyssa McCuin, junior
“Personally, I feel comfortable with that (posting location) because I only really have people I know on my social media. I do keep track of who's following me, so there's not any weird people. I'm pretty cautious with what I post.”
Nico Fischer, freshman
“We're always taught that posting our location online is just not a good idea. I'd never post super sensitive information. For example, like where I live, my full name, family or anything like that. ”
