If you’ve raised a child in the media-saturated Western world in the past decade, you probably recognize Swiper the Fox above, the sly, yet incompetent ‘robber’ in the Dora the Explorer series. He’s the one who tries to procure essential items from our heroine Dora, and then gets admonished by Dora: “Swiper, no swiping! Swiper, no swiping! Say it with me!!!” I feel Swiper is a great mascot for the way our social media besties treat us sometimes with privacy. If you have a second, you might want to check/uncheck the following boxes on your favourite social media sites.
Twitter, no swiping!
Gmail, no swiping!
Google+, no swiping!
Facebook, no swiping! (Actually, you might need more than a second for this one.)
Have you caught any other social media swiping lately? Let us know in the comments!
