Facebook & privacy - research shows approaches that might help young people

[Sept] 22, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

What I like about this advice is that it cautions against using fear as a motivation for privacy management. "The main reason we heartily discourage young people from engaging with those they know they know is fear: fear of stalking, bullying or making friends with someone you've never met face to face... (danah boyd writes) 'The culture of fear tends to center on marginalized populations and is often used as a tool for continued oppression and as a mechanism for restricting access to public spaces and public discourse'."
