There has been a significant emphasis in the last few years on the importance of being cautious about what you publish or tweet on social networks such as Twitter and Facebook.
Seven years ago today, the world changed. Jack Dorsey and his team created a website that would change the way the world interacts with each other: Twitter. Since then, Twitter has become one of the Top 10 most used websites all around the world.
#LiesToldInSchool was trending in the Twitter world yesterday, providing some nostalgic entertainment about all those little white lies everyone told during their school years.

In my twenty-three years I have developed a shock-proof shield. Very few things penetrate it, until a month ago in October. I discovered someone was posting on twitter and thejournal.ie using my picture. A different name, but same picture: identity theft.
