What are the risks ? Privacy - Sharing too much information and not understanding: Who potentially might see it Losing control of it How long it can potentially follow you How it could be used now and in the future Blurring boundaries of friendship Viruses/worms – lots of little applications users can’t control and don’t understand Addiction – Being “always on” has a personal price; lots of kids (and adults) have a hard time controlling the impulse

Privacy - Sharing too much information and not understanding:

Who potentially might see it

Losing control of it

How long it can potentially follow you

How it could be used now and in the future

Blurring boundaries of friendship

Viruses/worms – lots of little applications users can’t control and don’t understand

Addiction – Being “always on” has a personal price; lots of kids (and adults) have a hard time controlling the impulse

If you don’t have an account… Facebook wants you to use their service, so they let you see just enough as a non-user to want to become an active user.

What should Privacy screens look like?
