  1. 1. Social Surveillance BY USING SOCIAL MEDIA WE ARE UNDER CONSTANT SURVEILLANCE BY NOT ONLY OUR SELECTED ‘FRIENDS’, BUT THE WHOLE WORLD DOES, OR SHOULD THE RECENT INFORMATION ON THE LEVEL OF SOCIAL SURVEILLANCE HAVE AN IMPACT ON HOW WE USE SOCIAL MEDIA?
  2. 2. Social Surveillance Social surveillance is the use of Web 2.0 sites like Twitter, Facebook and Foursquare to see what friends, family, and acquaintances are “up to” (Joinson 2008; Tokunaga 2011). http://library.queensu.ca/ojs/index.php/surveillance-and- society/article/viewFile/pub_dom/pub_dom
  3. 3. Surveillance and Social Media  "'Social media' like Facebook or Twitter have become tremendously popular in recent years. Their popularity Provides New Opportunities for Data Collection by state and private Companies, Which requires a critical and theoretical focus on Social Media Surveillance.” Fuchs and Trottier (2015) Fuchs, Christian “users cannot control their peers, nor can they control the intentions of those who control services like Facebook means that the longer users live on Facebook the more unprotected their lives are” Fuchs and Trottier (2015)
  4. 4. Security and laws of social media profiles HEADLINE: “Social media mass surveillance is permitted by law, says top UK official” http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jun/17/mass-surveillance-social-media-permitted-uk-law-charles-farr “Legitmate legal target”
  5. 5. Social Survelliance and the law Examples In winter of 2009 fugitive Craig Lynch posted the below message on social media Lynch posted this message, little did he know yes he was able to escape the police but however was remaining in the public eye.
  6. 6. Our control on what social media profiles portray  “I’d been looking for this robbery suspect. Detectives were at a dead end; I decide to look and see if the guy has Facebook. He does, completely unsecured, and had just ‘checked-in’ at a strip club. Search the lot, find a car matching the description of what he was seen leaving the robbery in. Turns out to be stolen. Wait for him to walk out, ID him, bring him to the detectives with their jaws hanging open. Guy admitted to it all. I didn’t even have to use my A.K.” http://www.digitaltrends.com/social-media/the-new-inside-source-for- police-forces-social-networks/#ixzz3ogW9Xt8i
  7. 7. Past research and statistics on social media privacy Northwestern University research paper questions regarding social media:  During a year in which Facebook altered its privacy settings accompanied by widespread media attention, to what extent did the site’s users alter their settings?  How does frequency of Facebook use relate to whether or not people adjust their privacy settings?  How does confidence in managing privacy settings correlate with the practice of doing so?  Is gender correlated with either confidence in or the practice of managing privacy settings?  Is general Internet user skill related to either confidence in or the practice of managing privacy settings?
