And as part of that, many people have been photographed in embarrassing situations which have been put online for all to see.

Dressed in school uniform, the girl was with a group of friends – all of whom are stood around looking on in amusement as she lays on the ground.
The girl’s arms are swinging and her legs are elevated as she attempts to get back up.
In the fray she somehow lost her backpack, which is seen flung just behind her.
Google has blurred her face and those of her friends to make sure she isn’t easily identifiable.

Unbeknownst to her, a man is behind her on the other side of the entrance.
He is bending down as he stands in front of a palm tree by the shop.
Embarrassingly, he is caught staring at her, eye level with her legs.
The shamed man seems to be taking note of the young woman from behind.
Both of their faces are blurred to spare their blushes.
