Privacy is important to me, especially in my personal life.
For awhile I had my Instagram page public, but a few months back I changed the setting to private.
You just never know who is lurking on the other side of the screen.
My account was on private and I received a request. I did not recognize the lady in the photo and did not accept the request for a couple of weeks.
Once I accepted the request I looked through her photos and I still did not know where I knew her from.
Maybe we worked together at one of my old jobs or maybe I knew her from college.
She did not post anything right away. Then one day she liked every single one of my pictures.
I thought that was strange. I started thinking maybe she was drinking or bored.
She commented on some of my pictures. Then she sent me a direct message asking where I got my tattoo work done.
She said I should post more photos of my tattoo. I said maybe someday I will.
Then a couple weeks later it suddenly dawned on me that she was a he. As I read one of her post I realized I had not been talking to her. I was talking to the man that was in the pictures with her.
I had been talking to a man the whole time. Now it all makes sense.
Have you ever had a strange experience?
What is your social media preference public or private?
