Concept public privacy

Social Media and Internet - as smartphone our constant companions - allow for omnipresence. I am here and at the same time somewhere else.

Some are in dialogue, some also simply waiting calmly, but many through social media in a dialogue with invisible third parties somewhere in the Internet. Is it a love affair with which is flirted, is it the boss, the colleague, a quick purchase on the Internet? For ever entrusted to a social network.
