This is not specific to the final, just so timely, consider our last two lectures, I thought I would share.
First, TWO recent privacy snafus on Facebook — one I briefly mentioned in class, one that emerged today — and the political inquiry emerging:
BBC News, “Facebook fizes embarassing security flaw”
Xeni Jardin, “Yet another Facebook privacy risk: emails Facebook sense leak user IP address” Boing Boing
Caroline McCarthy, “Facebook’s Impending Fight with D.C.” CNet
Then, some commentary about these recent issues, including the changes we discussed in class.
Matt McKeon, The Evolution of Privacy on Facebook (amazing diagram of how privacy defaults have changed.)
Electronic Frontier Foundation, Facebook’s Eroding Privacy: A Timeline
Mathew Ingram, “The Relationship between Facebook and Privacy: It’s Really Complicated.” Salon.com
Clive Thompson, “Brave New World of Digital Intimacy” New York Times (good article about the News Feed controversy)
Ryan Singel, “Facebook’s Gone Rogue, It’s Time for an Open Alternative” Wired Epicenter
