Data privacy day 2009
Yesterday was Data privacy day 2009. Well apparently not in South Africa it wasn't but it was in the United States, Canada and 27 European countries. The purpose of the day is to educate and make users aware of the best way to protect their information online.
With 55 percent of online American teens between 12 and 17 using social networks (this figure sounds low to me), the day is aimed at getting teens talking and thinking critically about privacy. The hope is that as the innovators and creative users of technology, teens can be the first and best protectors of their privacy online.
