While in Las Vegas for CES last week, 50 Cent sat down for a series of interviews to discuss his SMS Audio brand.

During a chat with The Verge, the hip-hop mogul offered some interesting thoughts about social media moving forward -- including Instagram.

50 Cent recently addressed the role that technology plays in the lives of people. In the interview, 50 Cent also spoke about how Instagram and other forms of social networking are set to impact lives in different ways.

"I think technology is gonna take away privacy completely," 50 said. "Your Google [Glass], the guy who just wants a photo for his social networking, takes a picture of you at the urinal because he tells the glasses to take the picture... You'll see it on his Instagram later. So, everything will be out.

"I think it's important to try to stay as close to as many people as possible, as far as your fanbase is concerned. I use my social networking to entertain them. It's not me showing you what I had to eat. People use it completely differently. They show you their lifestyle. But if you look at mine, my Instagram may even look like it's a fake one because it's things that I put up, not photos of me."

What do you think? Is social media destroying privacy?
