On April 15, 2013 there was a tragic bombing at the Boston Marathon. Almost instantly pictures and videos of "suspects" started to appear on the web. Was this a good thing? Do you have concerns?

Is social media eroding our right to privacy?

Is the availability and use of smart phones and other recording devices and ease of uploading video, photos and comment about anyone in any situation to social media an attack on our right to privacy, and also the presumption of innocence?
In my opinion we should be concerned about what the potential effects of the rise and rise of social media could be. In the Boston case, perhaps the good of finding the bombers justifies the means. But what of a situation when an innocent person is wrongly accused of a crime and their image is plastered across social media?
