3. A JANE DOE
4. ‘SHARE WITH MORE PEOPLE’
  Janehas a Friend Request from an ‘old
  Darren found Jane’s and Polly’s through an
‘easy’ Google name search.
  Darren has access to Jane and Polly’s latest
pictures on Flickr.
5. SOCIAL NEWS
  Janeand colleagues have a meeting with the
Head of Department about ‘improper images on
  News from big sis Polly comes via Twitter.
6. YOU’RE INVITED!
8. JANE LIVES CONSTANTLY CONNECTED
  Updates are sent direct to her
mobile phone. This means that
she is ‘always available’ and
  Jane does not always know
when others are reading or
retrieving information about
her, and this can be ‘an issue’.
9. PEOPLE LIKE JANE
  Acutely aware of social actions about their
networks e.g. through Twitter, Facebook
YouTube, Flickr etc.
  Expect to up-to-date social information
and engage with others regularly via
  Take for granted ubiquitous access and
being able to get in touch at ‘any time’
  Have an awareness of a distinction
between public and private information
10. PEOPLE NOT LIKE JANE
  Do not use social media
  Do not have a profile on a Social Network Site
  Do not share information with networks
  Are seen as at risk of being a ‘social outcast’
11. A SURVEILLED SENSIBILITY
  ‘Opt in’, OR to ‘opt out’.
  Constant monitoring
  Seek empowerment through social surveillance
e.g. as a way to protect and/or promote an
individuals social rating = Popular
  THUS increasingly we experience a range of
surveillance techniques as a single and
  Always expected to be aware of others
12. ARE WE BECOMING MORE LIKE JANE?...
  Social technology is
smaller, broader in
scope, more accessible
and easier to use.
  We are all capable of
surveillance; of ourselves
and our networks…
