  1. 1. Surveillance & Web 2.0 By Ollie Gibbs & Jack Hallows
  2. 2. Interactive media theory where an infrastructure focusing on content creation, management, and dissemination is built for the user to generate that content in a community framework. Urban Dictionary falls under the Web 2.0 theory because they built an infrastructure to create, manage, and disseminate the definition of slang terms generated by the user and ranked by the community. Jason D. Schwartz, (2006), Urban Dictionary, http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=web%202.0 Web 2.0
  3. 3. Web 2.0 surveillance is a form of surveillance that exerts power and domination by making use specific qualities of the contemporary Internet, such as user-generated content and permanent dynamic communication flows. Christian Fuchs, (2011), Sociology Compass 5/2 Surveillance
  4. 4. Modes of Surveillance : Use of accounts, database logs, information submitted and sold to survey a persons background and interests. : Private information regarding credit cards and banking are stored on a database, along with every trace of purchase and customer reviews. : Similarly to Facebook, Spotify stores all information inserted by the user into a large database so the program can recommend music tracks for the listener close to their tastes.
  5. 5. - Highly useful for corporations to examine audiences and potential markets. - User trends can be examined through online databases. - Advertising campaigns can be launched to specific audiences based on user account preferences and personal details. The Benefits of Online Surveillance
  6. 6. The Benefits of Online Surveillance - Legislation has ruled across many nations that online law enforcement is an essential source to prevent International terror. - Telecommunication companies such as BT use online surveillance to track usage on a daily or monthly scale in order to cut costs and track key usage times.
  7. 7. - Incidents such as the phone hacking scandal. - Lack of privacy in the public sphere. i.e. Facebook and online shopping. - Rise of hacking online and private information obtained. E.g. PSN hacking scandal. - As technology develops further surveillance will get tighter and more frequent thus creating a ‘robotic society’. The Negatives of Online Surveillance

  9. 9. - According to The Telegraph, the UK has approximately 5.9 Million CCTV Cameras - Numbers are growing all the time and can be said to be a benefit in crime prevention. - Most CCTV operations are run privately as opposed to governmental legislation. - Some of the public will argue the increase is an invasion of privacy. CCTV
  10. 10.  CCTV has even been proven by anti CCTV companies such as the ACLU to reduce property crime to reduce property crime and premeditated crime.  Such studies have shown that as a result of this decline, car theft has reduced significantly.  Useful in private businesses.  Retail markets have also benefitted from this, not just in the case of theft with the goods that are sold, but also, employees and employers are protected from false allegations. Issues and Benefits
  11. 11.  The reduction of theft is not that simple, studies have proven that crime has increased substantially in areas where there are no CCTV cameras.  ‘Protection vs Privacy’ (Dunn, 2009)  There will always be battle between human rights and protection, several protests have gone ignored on the issue of CCTV Surveillance. Issues and Benefits
  12. 12. Communication Surveillance
  13. 13.  In particular, mobile phones have been issued to many debates of controversy over the extent to which calls and conversations are monitored by law enforcements and governmental forces.  In 1998, it was found by the American Management Association that 43% of global companies tap phone conversations, as well as e-mail threads etc. Telecommunication
