What privacy issues are affected by Facebook? ... Just how public is our private???
Thnks! gtg, ttyl, ily

800,000,000 members
Is it really only
who I think it is?

Definition of privacy:
A state in which one is not observed or disturbed by other people.
The state of being free from public attention.

what are my options???
The bigger picture: who can really access all of my information? who really owns all of my data and personal information? and what are they doing with it?
The issues that arise with the coming of this new way of communication.....
Is it possible to protect ourselves online? and why it is important...
How ignorant are we? . what privacy options are we actually offered? .

When updating an individual status you can use the ‘audience selector’ to target your preferred audience for that post. You are able to select either ‘public’, ‘friends of friends’, ‘friends’, ‘only me’ or ‘friends excluding acquaintances’.

The most basic privacy setting of ‘who can see my stuff?’ – either being ‘friends’ or ‘public’
Categorizing your least close friends as “acquaintances”
You can limit the selection of people who can send you friend requests by choosing either ‘everyone’ or only ‘friends of friends’.

There is an option for “do you want other search engines to link to your timeline?” which if it is turned on means your timeline is visible to other search engines and your information is accessible.

You can choose who is able to post things on your timeline, your choices being either ‘friends’ or ‘only me’

You are also able to choose to “Review friends posts that you’re tagged in before they appear on your timeline” in order to limit the visibility. You also have the option of “reviewing tags people ad to your own posts before they appear on your timeline”.

You can view selective content, this meaning you’re able to choose who’s posts you see and the level of appropriateness of the content.

Just how much privacy are we gaining from them anyway

who else is seeing our personal information? .
A closer look into the concealed...
NOTE: Facebook treats your name, profile picture, gender, email address and networks (workplace, employer or employees, school etc.) as PUBLIC INFORMATION!
By posting member content to any part of the website, you automatically grant, and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant, to Facebook an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully paid, worldwide license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, perform, display, reformat, translate, excerpt (in whole or in part) and distribute such information and content and to prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works, such information and content, and to grant and authorize sublicenses of the forgoing.
They state that they may share your information with third parties including companies with which they have a relationship. This information could be shared on an account of advertising purposes most likely as Facebook makes the bulk of its revenues by selling targeted advertising deals.
More than 1 million sites have Facebook integration and all have the ability to use your Facebook ID on their own sites
• we also put together data from the information we already have about you, your friends, and others, so we can offer and suggest a variety of services and features. For example, we may make friend suggestions, pick stories for your News Feed, or suggest people to tag in photos.

• We may put together your current city with GPS and other location information we have about you to, for example, tell you and your friends about people or events nearby, or offer deals to you in which you might be interested.

Also a massive surveillance tool.
• It is believed that facebook is in cahoots with DARPA, the NSA and the CIA and that they use this site to obsessively monitor the online activity of members
because these companies believe it is the best place to resource information about people.
The dangers that shadow our use of this innovation in the way we connect .
Areas of privacy breached by Facebook:
Identity theft-
personal information is easily accessible
Locational details-
can be easily found or stalked
taking control of your identity and using it negatively, can result in making the victim look bad in a various number of ways
Use of your personal information without consent-
for such uses as advertisement or research (survey) data

A very relevant issue, especially concerning adolescents and young adults, that surrounds the lack of privacy of our personal lives online is that of the job market.
it is a very common and popular practice in todays business world to use Facebook as an employing tool.
when considering a potential employee, the employer will most likely check the persons Facebook page to get a basic understanding of the type of person they are.
but it has even grown from this basic practice, larger companies have been known to actually employ special tech wizzes to be able to fully access the employees personal data, having access to more then what is just visible to an outsiders view of their timeline. these hackers are able to view everything from recent activity online ie. what Facebook pages you visit to even being able to read personal messages.
access to all of your online data through Facebook is simple, don't think that what only you choose to show is what is only seen...
How to be careful? .
"It's a good idea to consider every activity on Facebook public knowledge"
- Clay Shirky, professor of new media
you may conclude from this that Facebook should change its privacy settings furthermore,
but even though you're privacy online is not entirely in your hands you do have a say in what you share that is actually accessible!
so just be cautious of your activity online!
be thoughtful about the information you share
and just think twice about would you want 'everyone' to be able to see what you put up and 'would this look good in front of an employer?'
group conversation
Do you think Facebooks privacy settings are as effective as they possibly could be? how do you suggest they could improve them?
