On the afternoon of Feb. 6, the Twitter hashtag#30FactsAboutMe began trending. Instantly, people from across the nation joined the conversation by sharing personal details about themselves. Are we too comfortable on social sharing sites?

According to many social networking experts, frequent users of sites like Facebook and Twitter feel less apprehensive than the average person about “spilling the tea” about their private lives.

EEW Magazine editor and self-proclaimed “tech geek” Tammy Tate admits that her younger sister Stephanie is a lot more open online than she is.

So what’s her advice for social sharing?

“Try to use wisdom about how you open up your life.  Watch what you say, show, and suggest on social networks,” advises Tate. “The information is out there for public consumption and everybody doesn’t need to know everything.”

These days, however, it isn’t strange to find intimate (borderline inappropriate) photographs (Like the one in the Bishop Larry Trotter controversy), deeply personal thoughts, and TMI videos online thanks to the popularity of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Social Cam.
