Privacy in Practice

What should you do?

Example #1: A kid you know at school gets bitten by a weird insect that causes an ugly multicolored rash on her stomach. She doesn't want other people to know.

                    *Do other people have a right to know?
                    *Should you be the one to tell them?

Example #2: Someone writes in their diary. Another person copies what they wrote and posts it online.

                    *Was the other person wrong to post the diary entries?
                    *How would you feel if someone did this with your diary?

Example #3: Someone posts, "Have a good vacation,"on a friend's social media page.

                    *Had the friend announced publicly that they were going away?
                    *Are there more private ways to communicate this message--i.e., sending a private message or text?
