Online = Public

Yes, I've heard of access controls and such. However, it is more useful and safe to believe what was mentioned in the article: "It is ridiculous to think that there is privacy on public websites." (not to say that it is true in all cases...)

If you are sharing online - think 'you are sharing with the world.' If you want it private, keep it private (= offline) ...

i agree on these topic, no one can actually view your secrets if your offline unless they go to your place

Thanks for the comment, but the other side is more interesting: offline definitely means private, but does online always mean public, despite all the attempts to develop access controls?
