You can call it Privacy or Paranoïa but once a picture is on the web it’s not yours anymore.
I’m not on any social media platforms. And use different user names and avatars on the few forums I’m in.

I foresee a time when face recognition and cross reference softwares will be widely available to any hackers who will reconstruct your entire life and steal your identity just by following your numeric trail on the web.

It might not be much but I won’t give them a head start by voluntarily posting my face around the internet. I’m not judging you if you do. I’m just trying to be low profile.

Unfortunately you are right, but for me its too late.
It was all over the news a few years ago, my bank security was breached and I along with millions of people am one on the list of those who's personal information may have been compromised.

So I just accept that one day, I may get that dreaded Identity theft phone call.
I also travel allot to other countries and was in a music band attached to social media, Twitter, FB, My Space etc....so I cant hide my face even if I wanted to.
