We share our thoughts, our emotions and even our locations with the world through social media, whether others are interested in them or not. But is there a limit? When websites that allow people to rate pictures of “number two’s” exist, have we crossed a line? Singer Anthony Callea, actor Genevieve Morris and television presenter James Mathison join Chrissie Swan for Can of Worms, Monday 8.30pm, on TEN.
Eighty-one per cent of Australians believe we do share too much online, with 66% worried about their personal information being hacked*. Who on the panel admits to a serious Twitter addiction? Chrissie also talks to Australia’s most prolific Tweeter, Stephanie Krystle Chin, about her love for the platform.
Is it OK to swear in front of your mum? Genevieve Morris reveals she dropped a bomb at her mother’s funeral. And what about buck’s nights: are they out-dated and sexist or do they still have a valid reason for existence?
Produced by Cordell Jigsaw Zapruder for Network Ten.
Anthony rose to prominence after being the runner-up in the 2004 season of Australian Idol. He currently holds the record for both the highest and fastest-selling single in Australia for his debut release, The Prayer.
