Youngsters will freely give up private information to join social media on the Smart Phones. Afterwards, they are surprised when their parents read their Messages. Communities are outraged by the personal information posted by young people online and colleges keep track of student activities on and off campus. The posting of personal information by teens and students has consequences. This paper will discuss the uproar over privacy issues in social media by describing a privacy oxymoron; private versus public space; and, social media privacy issues. It will finally discuss proposed privacy solutions and steps that can be taken to help resolve the privacy irony.
