PRIVACY ON THE WEB

INTRODUCTION

Today we live in a world where everything that we do online is tracked, logged and recorded. People are plugged into the online world for significant periods of time on a range of different devices, many of which are now mobile. While this connectivity allows for huge amounts of information to be gathered, accessed and shared, it is essential that youth today are aware of the potential risks of participating in online activity. This blog will address some of the major issues surrounding online privacy and provide tools for teenagers to protect themselves on the web.

The topics that we will be covering in later blog posts are:

  • Retaining Privacy Within Social Media Networks
  • GPS Tracking and Geo Tagging
