    The success of social media platforms, digital assistants, intelligent systems and more rests on how much personal information we share. But are we sharing too much?
    We live in the information age. That designation refers to the access we have to information that exceeds that which was accessible in previous generations. Given the amount of personal information we share over social media, apps, digital assistants and more the "information age" can justifiably be seen as an age where we share, versus consume, an unprecedented amount of information.

    Privacy is an ever-eroding commodity we're sacrificing for convenience and exchanging for participation in the digital landscape that parallels our material world. Conversations, interactions, cliques, bullying, stalking, relationships, commerce, business, work, education, and more, transition continuously between the real and digital worlds.

    Consequently, "credentials" or personal disclosures necessary to participate in these areas in the physical world are also needed or requested for one's participation of the same in the digital. The innate barriers that offer certain levels of security (.i.e. being offline) to our personal information on the physical landscape may not be sufficiently replicated on the broadly accessible digital plane, however. Thus, the liberal nature with which we trust entities with our most personal information may be positioning us for harm.
