Polish that cock lads

How can anyone (especially someone that is a quasi-celebrity, or styles themselves as a celebrity) believe that in this day and age, anything they post in any kind of social media account (private or other wise) will remain confidential?I think it raises some interesting questions, mainly because I work somewhat in this arena.
Just because someone is "famous" and has a bit of money doesn't mean they're not entitled to a private life, nor does it mean their bank balance will make them feel any better about a friend betraying them.
I feel a little for Coleen Rooney as this was clearly from a private account, one she was selective about who she allowed access. If she wants to post a "WTF my house is flooded" picture to her friends on IG, she shouldn't have to live in fear of that story being sold to the press. I know it's a "consequence of fame" to some extent but she took precautions and it's clearly a shitty thing to do whoever did it.
Becky Vardy 100% has a private account as well, so it will be interesting if it comes out if it was her private account that was accessing Coleen's private one or a public one. If it's Becky's private account her argument is completely void as nobody else would have access to that. If she's using her public account to follow Coleen's private one then fair enough, other people in her management etc will have access to that account and really Coleen should be clued up enough to know that.
Have these people been so ignorant that they have learned nothing from events of the last few years? Whether its by hacking, social engineering, wire tapping, or something else, nothing (and I mean NOTHING) remains confidential if it is posted to the internet. Eventually, it will get found out. And if they believe otherwise they are delusional.
Want to share with your friends that your basement is flooded? Set up a group in your text app of choice and send them a fucking photo. Don't post it on Instagram, Twitter or whatever the flavor of the month is in "social media" (btw, I hate that term, it is the most unsociable thing imaginable), just send it to your friends - I'm sure they'll be excited to read all about it.
