This is true and it's a good point but, as MFPA points out, it's not a
new threat in principle.

I think the key point still remains that what one shares with the world
is very much under one's practical control, if one only remembers it.

Social interaction inevitably involves some extent of information
sharing, and always has, but that doesn't mean that privacy (and all the
nuanced concepts that are contained within that word) has somehow
evaporated the first time you communicate with someone, or travel
somewhere, etc.
