Facebook scores points in Europe after disabling facial recognition

Facebook scores points in Europe after disabling facial recognition | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

The move to disable facial recognition tagging in Europe has scored the social network some much-needed points in an official audit. 

 

Facebook has finally satisfied the European Union by disabling facial recognition tagging.


Facebook, which was subjected to an audit by Ireland's Data Protection Commissioner (DPC), was under pressure to implement a variety of changes in Europe, mostly dealing with privacy and security issues.

Last December, Facebook had promised to make the changes outlined in the audit document in order to comply with European regulations.

No Disconnect: European Commission to develop Human Rights guidance for the ICT sector « Digital Agenda Commissioner – Neelie Kroes

No Disconnect: European Commission to develop Human Rights guidance for the ICT sector « Digital Agenda Commissioner – Neelie Kroes | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
European Commission...

 

Great news today as the Commission starts the process of providing human rights guidance to the ICT sector – kicking off a process to make it easier for makers and users of ICT products and services to know the impact their technology has on Human Rights across the world.


When you look at events like the Arab Spring, you see that sometimes technology plays a positive role in the democratisation process – allowing activists to coordinate peaceful protests. But sometimes, it is less benign – as when despotic governments use ICT as a tool for surveillance or repression.

Every Member State needs a Digital Champion! « Digital Agenda Commissioner – Neelie Kroes

Every Member State needs a Digital Champion! « Digital Agenda Commissioner – Neelie Kroes | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
The economy of the future is digital. Already today it’s hard to think of many jobs where familiarity with computers and the Internet is not helpful: in the near future, 90% of jobs will require some level of digital literacy.

 

The answer is for every member state to have their own “digital champion” – a high-profile, dynamic and energetic individual responsible for getting everyone in their country online and improving digital skills. They would work with education authorities, industry, and grassroots activists; independent of central government, but reporting to it.
