Full Description

Facebook? Twitter? LinkedIn? FourSquare? Are you on one of these? Two? Three? Social networks are becoming more common and in libraries, expected. However, there has been a lot of discussion concerning how much each of these networks knows about you, how much they share with others, and who they are sharing with.

Take a trip on the dark side. Find out what you agreed to when you accepted their Terms of Service!

This series, Tech Topics, is primarily lecture-based and introduces library staff to technologies that may impact libraries and library services.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify 3 types of information about you that social networks would like to share with other organizations
  • In your favorite social network, explain one way you can make your information more private

Prerequisites: Have an account in at least one social network
