Collecting information can never be wrong!
I can accept that photos from smartphones can be taken "everywhere" and "anytime".
I can even accept it as something good.
Collecting information can never be wrong.
But, why should everyone publishes the information or the pictures being collected on the web?
Couldn't be easier to send it or post it to a website contolled by whom is in charge of the investigation?
In my opinios, smartphones are a tremendous advantage. An advantage that can help in many directions.
What is important though, is to remember that information is just information and nothing more.
There must be an apropriate examination of the information, in order to be valid.
And this examination must take place before anything has been published on the web.
So, in my opinion, the problem doesn't concern about if the photos should be posted on the Web... but...
"To whom should we post the photos and if he is trustworthy?"
