Danish youth panel sends open letter to Facebook January 21, 2010Posted by Malene Charlotte Larsen in Facebook, Privacy, Youth.
Before Christmas the Danish youth panel “Medierødderne” sent an open letter to Facebook explaining their thoughts on privacy on the site. For instance, they wrote:
For us it’s important to have privacy online to protect ourselves from people we don’t know. […] We want it to be easy and simple for us to change our personal settings when it is needed. In general it is hard to find out how to protect ourselves the best. We want to be the boss of who can see our profile.”
I think that privacy is going to be a big issue among youth – especially, now that they have to “share” social network sites such as Facebook with their parents.
