Eyes Everywhere!

Whenever I go online I get this feeling that my every movement is being watched. Recently I checked out a product on a site - and now the product I researched pops up at intervals when I am on mylot. Seems like google has eyes everywhere. At first I thought my friend was being a bit paranoid about her privacy online. She told me that she covers the camera which is on the top right hand corner of her laptop with a piece of tape every time she opens it up. I think I will do the same, even though I am not sure how the camera can affect me negatively. What are your online privacy concerns?

I think my biggest "fear" online is having passwords stolen. It's happened to me. Now I change my passwords monthly. Here's a song for you.
Music video by Rockwell performing Somebody's Watching Me. (C) 2004 Motown Records, a Division of UMG Recordings, Inc.

I love the song - and the video is kind of amusing. I think a lot of women were afraid to enter the shower after watching the movie "Psycho ". Good tip, I think I'll change a few passwords.

I cover the camera with electrical tape on my laptop too. Being hacked worries me.

@Kandae11 No need to regret. I hope you didn't use your laptop topless

I have gone well past getting irritated with this. The moment I buy or even search for a product on Amazon pronto it features on FB and even here. Since I do not lose much I do not mind.

I know I'm being watched. But I got things to do, so I do them. But I pity the poor soul who has to watch me. What a boring job!

@Kandae11 - I didn't do it. My daughter did it. She's the paranoid one. I didn't even know it was a camera. My son gave me the laptop and he didn't tell me! Thank God for kids who are up on the technology.

I know this phenomenon. Once I ordered a nightgown online and then was bombarded for months with offers of nightgowns. No idea why I should buy the same thing immediately after buying an item.

It can be annoying - especially when one is no longer interested in purchasing the product.
