Technology without a doubt has made things easier for us. However, that being said, it has also complicated things. Take for example the social media; people are constantly updating their status, expressing their feelings for their significant other, letting the rest of the world read how they feel about a particular person. There’s no doubt that love is a beautiful thing, and most folks would agree with this fact. You have to be quite lucky to find the right person with whom you can share feelings and express your love. Furthermore, many young lovers tend to foolishly take racy images of them engaging in various acts – acts that they wouldn’t want others to see – especially if the couple is of the same-sex. Recording intimate photographs is fine, as long as one is careful in keeping them a secret from others, however, despite most efforts, such data almost always leak out; consequently, resulting in embarrassment and humiliation.
One such disadvantage of technology is digital photographs/images, which can be shared on the internet with others. With the advent of digital technology, one no longer has to invest in a camera, film, or pay for those images to be developed. One can simply take a high-resolution picture with their Smartphones, save them on their PCs, or perhaps upload them on social media websites. On the other hand, many same-sex couples don’t have that luxury – or perhaps have the liberty to upload such Risqué metaphors on social media websites– doing so, they risk embarrassment and they risk becoming the laughing stock of their friends and peers. Furthermore, most homosexuals don’t want to disappoint family members. Therefore, hiding images of such nature on their PC’s becomes a challenge for most gay people. Things get really risky if a couple has several images of such nature, and thus, it becomes more of a challenge to hide them unless you use security software like Folder Protect to lock and hide your private images.
One strategy that works well is archiving such images onto an external hard-drive. One can simply invest in an external hard-drive, cut and transfer all images of such character onto an external hard drive and store it away – where no family member can find it. Sadly, that’s not the case, often times, sooner or later, your hidden skeletons will be found, be it your wife who discovers it, or perhaps your girlfriend. Sooner or later, your real sexual orientation will be discovered. The other threat that these small data storing device impose to the data is that these devices are very much prone to getting lost or stolen. IT experts rate USB flash drives as one of the major sources of losing data. Keeping data in portable drives, those drives can be found by some family members as they are very easy to put somewhere and forget, moreover, can leak the data in front of strangers.
