Who Owns Your Content Online?

Who Owns Your Content Online? | Online identity | Scoop.it
Myspace got into hot water last year for deleting years of users’ blog posts before its re-launch. Were users right to get upset in response? Did Myspace have to hand over old posts to users whose accounts had been deleted? The short answer is that, legally, it didn’t have to do a thing.
Amanda Swanson's insight:

#15 - It is really important to understand what we are signing up for, and then being vigilant in what we share. Privacy and security settings don't stop any organisation using content however they see fit.

Does my identity live on online after I die? – Patrick Stokes – Aeon | Online identity | Scoop.it
My Facebook page may be part of my identity, but can it give me a virtual afterlife?
Amanda Swanson's insight:

#13 - As a skeptic about online identity being a true reflection of oneself, this article gave me some things to rethink.  That is, until the mention of apps being developed to allow dead people to continue a social media presence. Speechless!

Social Media Over The Past Decade | HubSpot

Social Media Over The Past Decade | HubSpot | Online identity | Scoop.it

...To think of what “might be” a few years from now is barely fathomable but really exciting! I remember listening to the keynote speaker at the 1990 Seybold Conference talk about how books in the future would be enjoyed on electronic readers, and thinking, “not in my lifetime would electronic readers replace printed books.” We all know how that turned out.

 

Let’s go back and hit the high points from the past ten years. Below is a visual infographic timeline followed by a more detailed look at each year! Pay close attention to the ones that were launched in 2012; some of them have a lot of potential to be game changers!

8. Despite that this presentation is somewhat simple I think it does a fantastic job of clearly illustrating and outling online identity which makes it an excellent resource in terms of understanding what an identity and its fragments are. I believe the presentation's source, the Internet Society, is a very ethical, trustworthy and reliable organisation whose authority on all matters of digital society and the Internet is worth noting.

We put a great amount of trust in complete strangers who we allow to access our personal information.
