Kim Kardashian opens up about social media privacy at tech conference

The ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star talked about keeping her kids out of the spotlight

Kim Kardashian is the ultimate social media maven, but over the years, the 38-year-old has learned to take precautions when it comes to sharing her personal life. On Tuesday, October 8, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star took to the stage at the 23rd World Congress on Information Technology convention where she was a keynote speaker. Although the mother-of-four continues to share many (many) bits of her life on her social platforms, Kim wants to keep the lives of her four children, whom she shares with Kanye West, less public.

Kim K won’t stop sharing snaps of her kids, but will be more careful when posting

"I think at the beginning, I didn't even know what the word privacy really meant. I was very OK with people knowing every detail of my life," she explained. "As you get a little bit older and you have kids, and you realize you do want to value some privacy, I figured out a really good balance of sharing what I want to share."

"I move really cautiously now that I have kids, but I still love to be open and honest and that's who I am and that's my brand," she added. "There is a way to have both and to share but not feel like your whole life is being used just for social media. You do have to have balance."

"There definitely is oversharing," she continued. "Especially when safety can be a factor... when there is so many eyes on you. I learned first hand that if you share too much it can be a little bit dangerous at times."
