What governs your sense of people’s privacy? Is it dependent on how you were brought up? What your friends do? Your own feelings? Is there a difference between taking video or photos to share just with friends in person, and posting that photo or video on social media? Is there a higher bar of expected privacy for social media use of images? When posting content acquired in a public space do your think people even think about when it’s appropriate to do so?
