The Myth of Internet Privacy

Google has been asked to apply the users’ right to be forgotten by removing them from the search results. Individuals require privacy in their lives but do not necessarily enjoy that right on the internet. Internet users are encouraged to set their privacy setting on each platform. Do all platforms offer the same privacy options? Would that be enough to ensure people have control over their online presence/reputation? What happens to their information when they pass away? There is clearly room for more regulation with regards to internet privacy and internet user protection.
