As I think about privacy of my Basecamp and my NLS, I have not put much consideration into it because these spaces have the goal of generating followers. I am careful what I put on these two spaces but when I think of other social media spaces, I have worked very hard to make sure that my spaces such as Facebook and Instagram are carefully protected.
