Nowadays, if we are referring to how work the internet, the world wide web and most of the social networks, we can easily notice that any identity verification and official control is really processed. If we want to create an account on a social network, to create a web site, or to buy/sell something on the internet, we can easily use any true or false identity, pseudonym, or whatever we want to do it! So actually, we never know really who is who, who is really behind an account, or if this person is the real one or not!! Understand that I am not talking about the anonymity or possibility to stay nameless for everyone’s look on the world wide web, but for those who want to be involved in a constructive way to this world, and the others.
Without a verified and certified identity on the world wide web, on the social networks, anyone can pretend to be anybody else, and use the identity of another person as he feels or wants to, and make damage to each and every one. Additionally, with the actual possibility of the instant geolocation of each and all easily available to the public area, it becomes a real problem and can put in jeopardy the safety of the property, of the people, or even more, the security of the nations themselves…
If we are referring to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/ Article 3.: “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.” we are in our rights to expect from our countries to be fully protected and not endanger by an uncontrollable spread of our private data and of a lack of privacy respect!! And it goes without saying that we really have to protect in first, those who are not able to protect themselves, like children, unknowing people, etc. And to keep everyone informed is to practically consider as a real necessity from now on.
Moreover, through the Article 12.: “No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.” we can expect to have a full respect of our privacy, especially in all of our private correspondence like emails, or private messages, and to not possibly see them bring to light one of these days, for an unknown reason.
All of those problems of respect of our privacy, of our identity, of our private data, or of our instant geolocation, and more, are some collective and general problems, and must be treated as a collective and general problem!!
And again, if we are referring to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 8.: “Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law.” and to the Article 28.: “Everyone is entitled to a social and international order in which the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration can be fully realized.” we are really in our rights to expect from our countries, our nations, to definitely take actions and legislate to solve this problem for the good. This should be their responsibility as signers and co-signers of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and as a real collective and general matter.
This is why we can’t actually consider the social networks, the internet or the world wide web as a safe and secure place, even not with friends!! We really should obviously consider this area as a public open space, with all of the possible dangers that incurred, and wait for something better in what we could really have trust in!
And more than all, vigilance is therefore required!
I bring it to mind here, that no one can claim to possession or disposition of the intellectual property or material property of someone that he is not the owner in law, or the author or copyright owner...
