  • Frank Groeneveld, Barry Borsboom and Boy van Amstel.  They are the creators of, a website that uses Twitter's search functionality to show location-based messages. Their goal is to raise awareness about the potential risks of location-awareness and over-sharing.  The opinions here are theirs only and do not necessarily represent those of CDT.
  • In the end, it seems as though Facebook is only as private and secure as you make it. Users can set their privacy settings so that no one can find them – not even Mom and Dad. Problems arise when users aren’t aware of these settings and what information about them is available to the public. By taking a few minutes to reexamine your privacy settings, Facebook should be a better site for you to use. At least until you get poked again. Or get that invitation to join Farmville again. Or get that friend request from your boss again…
  • The National Law Journal warns about the dangers of  using LinkedIn to provide recommendations to current or former employees. The concern is that a terminated employee may use favorable recommendations on LinkedIn as evidence that the employer's stated reason for termination--poor performance--is merely a pretext for discrimination, retaliation, or harassment. Any communications concerning employee performance, regardless of the media, are potential evidence in a lawsuit. -Patrick Smith

    4. 4. Social media intro<br />Basically, they are web sites where, for free, we can connect and interact with other people.<br />What makes social media different is that it is more than two-waycommunication.<br />
    5. 5. Everybody here at the City is in marketing, whether you want to be or not.Social media affects every employee here in some way. Our social media team is a critical part of our approach. But the rest us are equally important as well.<br />
    6. 6. Our residents and the people looking for us online don’t care about the City structure. <br />If they find one of us on Twitter, Facebook, or leave a comment on our blog, they’re looking for a response from anyone who can help, regardless of what department that person is in or what someone’s official job title is.<br />Who can’t relate to this?<br />
    7. 7. How does this affect us then?<br />Simple. We need to take the necessary steps to protect our families and our jobs by protecting our privacy on any social media sites we belong.<br />
