Lorrie Faith Cranor and Aleecia McDonald from Carnegie Mellon conducted a study recently which repositioned the lack of online privacy as a time issue.
So we all want our time online to be a more private affair, but find it impossible to wade through the policies and figure out what’s what? Further, even if you had the time to read them, would anyone but a Privacy Specialist understand them, and worse, be willing to forgo the benefits brought by Facebook and Google in an effort to maintain some sort of online anonymity? I suspect not in each case.
It’s hard to see how to solve this issue.
Over time I worry that the role of government will be to reign in on the issue if left unsolved, which would be a bad outcome for all.
One thought on “Is Privacy dead, or just too hard?”
My family members always say that I am killing my time
here at web, but I know I am getting knowledge daily by reading thes good articles or reviews.
