  • Guide to Safely Participating in Online Social Networking Pfizer Internal The fictional person we will use throughout this session is Jessica.
  • Guide to Safely Participating in Online Social Networking Pfizer Internal Jessica has a large social network of friends that she maintains mainly by use of online services and activities especially as she didn’t grow up or go to school in the local area where she now works. Of course she also made lots of friends when she attended university ….
  • Guide to Safely Participating in Online Social Networking Pfizer Internal So her contacts are scattered wide and far and live in different time zones…. She makes use of lots of on line networks to keep in touch so her friends and family know what she is doing and how her career is progressing….
  • Guide to Safely Participating in Online Social Networking Pfizer Internal From the data Jessica has posted on line, people can see What she looks like – from photos taken on holiday, with friends, socially…maybe even what her pets look like… Who her friends are and probably where they live.. What her social diary is like and maybe her professional one… Where she works and what she does there… Where she lives, how long she has lived there and where she goes in the locality …. Also what she is doing right at that moment in her on line diary…and who with Put this all together and it builds quite a picture.
  • Guide to Safely Participating in Online Social Networking Pfizer Internal In Jessica’s eyes, she controls what information she puts on the web
  • Guide to Safely Participating in Online Social Networking Pfizer Internal However the problems might not be the amount of information she shares, but what you can tell from it … the picture you can build. What she posts may be well controlled but as soon as you start linking to friends, and they start mentioning and talking about you as well, how do you know who has access to their information…? For example - Jessica may not have disclosed her home address on her web pages, but her friend Freddy mentioned on his pages what a nice house she has, and when he visited her at the weekend down in Deal what a difference her improvements have made… look at the before and after pictures … and isn't it in a nice location in Acacia Avenue…
  • Guide to Safely Participating in Online Social Networking Pfizer Internal Of course here in the UK we have the added worry of animal rights and implications if they are able to piece information together on the web. Jessica is a little worried as she does feel a little exposed on that front since her name is now plastered across the web in conjunction with Pfizer as well and she has had some thoughts about what she can do to better protect herself from such an occurrence but would certainly like to hear the opinions of the security experts. .. But where to go for advice….?
  • Guide to Safely Participating in Online Social Networking Pfizer Internal We know that various agencies including Police Investigators Recruitment Agencies Prospective employers Marketing companies And Extremist Groups All use these sites as one of the mean for gathering data on individuals and building a picture of individuals for their own use and means. Recent examples are Virgin Atlantic when they became aware of several employees discussing their feelings about the company on one of the well known blog sites…. xxxxxx On 26 Feb 09 Facebook revised their Privacy Policy and terms and conditions following user and Privacy group feedback when they amended the existing guidance to state that they would hold your details and content of users websites even if the user removed or closed their account. Facebook will publish two documents ­ the Facebook Principles, focusing on users¹ rights, and the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, outlining the social networking site¹s new terms and conditions. With both documents, we tried hard to simplify the language so you have a clear understanding of how Facebook will be run¹, Facebook¹s founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, wrote on his blog. http://blog.facebook.com/blog.php?post=56566967130 Facebook users will have opportunity to vote for or against any proposed changes to the terms and conditions before they go into effect. Lets work through an example – this is a real life example involving a real person and the resultant activity actually happened.
  • Guide to Safely Participating in Online Social Networking Pfizer Internal A few simple tips that Jessica can follow… On public social networking sites, you can use a nickname rather than your real name and you can use an avatar (cartoon or image) or an old photo of yourself when you were a lot younger. Think about what you include in the info… would you be happy for complete strangers to know this information Know who you are befriending South of England, Kent rather than 3 Acacia Avenue, Deal, … You can arrange for your details not to appear on 192.com and also the electoral role (which is mandatory for you to complete) will allow you to opt out from your details appearing on the publicly accessible register. At lot of Social networking sites (Facebook) require a certain amount of information before you can log on and create your own pages or profile. However, a lot of them default the privacy settings to allow everything and anyone so it is recommended that you immediately change these in order to control the accessibility of your data.
