The Future of Privacy and Publicness
SOCIAL NETWORKINGSeptember 1, 2010
Using social networking posts and media reports, Fast Company reports that "the line that separates privacy and openness remains undefined" as individuals weigh the "benefits and risks of living in public." Focusing on responses to Facebook's recent privacy-related decisions and user posts from Twitter, the report looks at the media's role in fueling discussions and debate around privacy. Following an analysis of responses and reactions to the word privacy, among other things, the report states that the push-back from people and the press can help "push things forward collaboratively" as "we are the last generations to know privacy as it was."
