We’re big proponents of online privacy and Swomi is short hand for a more empowered internet user. In fact, providing technology to help empower everyday people is one of the core tenants of why we exist as a company. We are on letter “P” of our letter-by-letter theme “O.N.L.I.N.E. R.E.P.U.T.A.T.I.O.N.” and we are looking at how your online privacy can be crucial to your online reputation. Like with literally everything on the internet, online privacy and your online reputation begin with your online content.
How Online Privacy Empowers Users
Empowered internet users are the captains of their online content. The main concept revolves around one thing – more control for the individual and less control for corporations. Practically, online privacy states corporations require consent before tracking you and that users have a right to not share data.
Let’s visualize the state of your online privacy to your real life. It’s similar to a home has no locks on the doors and windows and anyone can come in whenever they want. The people that do come in are free to take whatever they want from your home. There’s no law saying they can’t. And there are cameras inside your home recording everything you do. To believe you have privacy means you lie to yourself regularly while wearing a blindfold.
Why Empowered Users Equal A Better Online Reputation
Imagine receiving the social value and financial value of your content. What would your life look like? For one, you would at least have locks on your doors. Thank goodness. If we took the privacy of our real lives just as seriously as our online lives, people would start to see things change in people’s favor. The social currency of your content would suddenly have way more value. You would be able to choose which bits of your information you want people to see. For example, you can even sell your June 17’s browsing history to advertising companies. How cool would that be?
When it comes to your online reputation, you can fully benefit from the content your create and curate. When you post your content to a social media platform, your forced to give up control over your content in exchange for using their platform. Sure, you’re connected to more people faster but your online privacy is compromised too.
Because our digital and real lives are so deeply intertwined, a credible online reputation can create a favorable impression with employers, attract a suitable partner, and, in the future, possibly even back up your credibility for receiving a bank loan.
