State AGs and Facebook Align To Educate Youth
SOCIAL NETWORKING—U.S.April 15, 2013
The National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) and Facebook are launching plans to educate children and their parents about privacy and online safety, ABC News reports. NAAG President and Marlyland Attorney General Doug Gansler said, “There are more and more parents now who understand Facebook and how it works and how their children are using it but don’t necessarily understand the privacy settings and how they work.” The partnership will launch several different online tools, including a Facebook page featuring information on privacy settings, best practices and privacy control tips. Editor’s Note: Intel Global Privacy Officer David Hoffman, CIPP/US, recently wrote about accountability and the importance of privacy education in the IAPP’s Privacy Perspectives.
