Washinton Post Social Reader Sucks

If you are among the group of people who love to use social apps for your favorite blogs and newspaper. But often worry about your privacy. There may be times when you could have told yourself that I’ll never this kind of news ever again on Facebook. But reading celebrity gossips, wardrobe malfunction, who left whom and married whom, how to get six pack abs, how to be a dude, and other interesting news is what we like. But reading these kinds of posts and articles may end up degrading up your reputation. As whatever you read using social apps on Facebook ends up showing on your facebook timeline. Now you don’t want your friends to know what you read today as it may be embarrassing for everyone.

If you don’t think you need to hide what you read through social apps. Then here’s a Reason for you

Just for example you saw an article regarding wardrobe malfunction of a famous celebrity and you read it. And you may have younger cousins, girlfriend or wife, and other siblings who’ll be notified that you read this article. Just think embarrassing moment when you meet them in person. Don’t want to go through it now do you?
