A new kind of nosy neighbor

GF Herald

They say good fences make good neighbors, but thanks to the Internet, residents can peek over their neighbors’ fences without leaving the comfort of their homes.

Before the Internet, neighborhood snoops had to poke around in records at the courthouse or sit outside and observe a backyard barbeque. Building a privacy fence usually took care of some problems concerning that nosy neighbor playing peek-a-boo from behind curtains.

But now, a quick Internet search can reveal piles of information about your neighbors, their kids or relatives — or yours if you’re the subject of their search.
