    If ya think there is even the tinest bit of any sort of privacy in this new cybertech world you are sadly mistaken. If you know where to go you can find virtually anything about anyone. There are sites where you can sign on to ghost anyones cellphone. You can twin their phone, to listen as they recive calls, see who they call and listen in, view all their photos and texts, even enable the speakerphone function without their knowledge……..If you are ascared of anyone knowing what you speaking or typing you need to do it in person face to face in a closed room…………

    I miss the good old days of the internet, when you were pretty much expected to go by a screen name and stay anonymous, and you had to know HTML to set up a website where you could blab all your secrets. Nowadays, everyone posts their full name everywhere with all their information.
