Right, which is why I'm shocked that anybody actually feels safe posting their picture there.

Well folk do, and I suppose only folk that aren't particularly worried about that kind of thing will opt into this.

The same is true of me (except there might be an anonymized voice recording or two floating around). Still paranoid, because even though I haven't posted anything with my face in it, my family and friends probably have. And when you're a woman with strong political views, you can never be too careful on the internet.

I have 4 people from NS on my facebook. The reason I refuse to use video for this call is that unless it's people I know I'd be really worried about like showing things I don't know are there. Besides, I'll be with my whole family and you don't show people who don't give consent on video. I'll definitely be there on audio though.

And that’s perfectly ok. You have a right to protect your privacy after all.

It's not even about privacy for the first part.

It's just the house looks like a shit tip because nobody cleaned it since we all got told we weren't having visitors for months.
