Report Security and the internet in Talk of the Town Posted February 2, 2019 When should we truly be ourselves. On this website we could be said to hide our identity ! On Facebook etc should we be ourselves . The risks of identity theft are great if we read some accounts or newspapers. Obviously people use fake profiles to cause mischief and insult others. Big business and even governments local and national are using social media to influence our opinions. Bedlington is no exception., My question is ‘when is it important on social media to be truly yourself.’ Possibly never.
