A big part of the world still does not have access to internet and consequently to social media. If social networks do promote new ideas, these ideas are restricted to a priviledged part of the world.
The existence of social networks has made possible for knowledge to be democratic, since now is possible for everyone to produce, consume and share knowledge.
Just because you have nothing to hide, doesn't mean that people should violate your right to privacy. We should also consider the fact that in that we are running into new threats such as cyber warfare. Our information could be used by hackers, which they can use for blackmail or to expose our bank

E. Duchesne discovered penicillin 31 years earlier than Fleming. He wrote up his findings in a thesis, but because he was unknown & young (only 23 at the time) the French Institut Pasteur didn't acknowledge his work. In those 3 decades, untold millions died of diseases that could have been cured.
