Transcript of Jaiku Final Presentation

Jaiku and Privacy What is Jaiku? Jaiku is a microblogging site that is similar to Twitter. Users can access Jaiku
from mobile devices
and computers. One of
the initial draws to Jaiku
was that it could be accessed
from a cell phone. Status updates/messages
must be 140 characters or
less on Jaiku.com.
Jaiku was bought by
Google in 2007. http://www.jaiku.com/ Jaiku was originally a Finnish
mobile website created by Petteri Koponen and Jyri Engeström. Does Jaiku
Threaten Privacy? Works Cited

New York times article, “We extract a lot of information automatically, especially from mobile phones.” Jaiku automatically collects information
about its users depending on how
they access the website. For instance,
if you access Jaiku.com from you cell phone,
Jaiku collects you phone number,
your phone ID, calendar events,
whether the user is on the phone, and more.
http://www.jaiku.com/privacy Jaiku could determine
one's location and get
numbers in one's
address book. Pros of Jaiku Jaiku lets your share what you
are doing with your friends. A person's posts and movements
are shared with others that are
in the same social network(s). People in one's social network
are made aware of where a person
is, and this is good if one needs
to contact someone. By Chris Weiherer
