  • tegansarah tegansarah The presentation of Facebook’s Terms of Use shows many good points with imagery to support your arguments. The presentation clearly explains how Facebook has the rights to use your content as the, “terms of service agreement which some claim allows them to use your pictures, videos, updates, or whatever else you post on the social network” (The New York Observer, 2009). You explained well how Facebook uses your content by using examples helps the audience understand Facebook and its terms of use. I agree that Facebook does not guarantee its users with a “safe and secure” environment to share information, which can be harmful users, especially users who are new to any form of a social network. As Facebook doesn’t provide a completely safe environment, so users must make good decisions by protecting their privacy by choosing private settings as, because their information is accessible under public settings (Facebook, 2011). You clarify that there many things you must agree to, when signing up an account to Facebook. For example, children under the age of 13 cannot register an account on Facebook (Facebook, 2011). I think you could’ve made a slide focusing on the mobile usage of Facebook, as you can currently use Facebook on your mobile phone but standard fees will apply (Facebook, 2011).I think your choice to use a powerpoint to present your information is a good decision as you clearly present your points in a organized manner. Using imagery and text, captures and holds the attention of your audience.

  • FarnazShamsBaher1 Farnaz Shams Baher I think your power point which is about Facebook Terms of use is pithy, I agree as you point up there that Facebook does not guarantee that user’s information will be “safe and secure”, because being safe in Facebook depends on how they use Facebook? For instance, a person who sets its privacy setting to public, or another person who accepts lots of application, its information will be in high risk, because their information is more accessible (Facebook, 2011). So being safety in Facebook is up to users, they shouldn’t make friend with someone who they don’t know them well and every users should think through everything they post online (Gaudin, 2010). Inanition, Facebook users have to be older than 13 years old and every Facebook users have to agree they are not under 13 (Facebook, 2011). However, there are large number of users who are under 13, because they don’t inter their valid birthday date and Facebook doesn’t guarantee that all of its users are above 13, because changing date of birth is easy for everyone in Facebook, however no one has permission to give Facebook invalid information (Gaudin, 2010). I think Facebook has powerful rules, which obeying them brings safety for all users, forexample we shouldn’t make multi account, users shouldn’t annoy anyone other users, users can do marketing only with the permission of Facebook and their marketing shouldn’t about sexuality or alcohol-related promotion (Facebook, 2011). It was not beyond the scope that you mentioned doing copyright is forbidden in Facebook and if users do that for second time, Facebook will delete their account and never allows them to be a member of Facebook (Facebook, 2011). Even more, I think you should mention users shouldn’t upload any virus or malicious code on Facebook and they shouldn’t disturb it (Facebook, 2011).

  • net303 net303 'Facebook does NOT guarantee that your information will be 'safe and secure'. I agree as you point up there, as discussed by Goettke & Christina (2007), the privacy protection is still insufficient. However, in the same reading, one of the best features of facebook is that it does not allow global searches. In my opinion, even though privacy is still insufficient but we are still avoid our privacy by using “online safety tip”. According to Facebook Term of Users, we can use this guide to protect our profile or our privacy is not to share it or talk with strangers. Online safety tip refers how to use the social networking in the right ways (Social Networking, 2010)). Online safety tip also to prevent for young users such as under 13 is not to use “Facebook”. However, facebook cannot guarantee it, to keep facebook safe. By join facebook, the users agree will not be under13 years old (facebook, 2011). However, some of users are able to join facebook even though they under 13 years old. We can say, facebook is no control to prevent the users who under 13, that able become part of facebook members because date of birthday can change anytime (facebook, 2011). According to facebook safety tip ( ), there are several point to protect, such as information for parents, internet safety Web site and Safety FAQs for users and parents. Online privacy tip is a good idea to avoid using the same website for both users web-based e-mail and as our search engine (Privacy & the Internet, 2008), but as I discussed as above, facebook do best to keep facebook safe, but facebook cannot guarantee it (facebook, 2011). Again, according to facebook agreement, we will not allow to give them the fake information however according to some research to avoid our information being abuse by other, we cannot to give a real identity through social networking (Internet safety tips, 2011).
