What if Andy Warhol had it wrong, and instead of being famous for 15 minutes, we’re only anonymous for that long?

Predicting Dark Triad Personality Traits from Twitter

Fiona Harvey's insight:

"Results also indicate that while users may be careful about the content they post on Twitter, the words they use may reveal more about their personalities than they would wish. This points to critical questions around the possible need for regulatory controls and/or raising awareness amongst users in order to prevent the misuse of information derived from Twitter and other online social network activity. " 


says it all.  Be aware  of how you are perceived online.  Implications here for privacy.

Does sharing photos of your children on Facebook put them at risk?

Does sharing photos of your children on Facebook put them at risk? | Digital Literacies information sources | Scoop.it
Children’s right to privacy from exposure on social media can often be undermined by their parents
Fiona Harvey's insight:

Interesting perspective on privacy for our children.  I read a similar article about how children have unwittingly  had their rights compromised as their life has been catalogued online before they are born from scans to each stage of their life.  When they are 18 will they have wanted that much information posted about them - and who knows what that will mean in 20 years time?  Will we have compromised their rights again, but allowing their images to be published will that form a database of images that provide intelligence to agencies who can identify them without their knowledge.
