YouTubes Effects Into the Personal Life.
After my laughter stopped I thought, "Wow, it would really be embarrassing if that were me and everyone saw this video." Is there a point where privacy is overstepped with sites like YouTube? Obviously yes, it's happened many times before. Things that have been posted via web that were never meant to be seen by anyone else have been known to leak to the public.
Today’s technology gives the media powerful new tools for intrusion into private lives. Cameras are smaller and easier to hide. Conversations are easily recorded surreptitiously. Computers and the Internet provide the ability to rummage through the closets of your life in ways that have never before been possible.
Even though the brother who filmed his brothers freak out may have had the right to put his video on the computer, I feel it was a violation of the other brothers privacy when he posted his video to the public, especially when his brother most likely didn't want him to do so. Also, people who have left comments have been rather cruel with their remarks. Most just say how they couldn't stop laughing but there are others that aren't so innocent. This is a hit on that brothers emotional state and could lead to more serious issues...just saying.
I'm just as guilty though because I'm not going to lie, I thoroughly enjoyed this clip. But my amusement is not as important as this kids well being...then again, maybe it was staged. You never know.
