Are you on social media? When I provide CIPP/C training, I often poll the classroom to see what the percentage is and, if people are being truthful, I’d say that about half the privacy pros out there really partake in some fashion.
I have a Facebook account, but can’t remember the last time I looked at it. Instagram — doesn't that mean I need to learn how to take better photos, before I share them? I try to be a touch more active on Twitter, but it's not always easy to remember. Hey — maybe if you follow me I’ll be more motivated to share privacy thoughts in 140 characters or less (you can find me @k_klein)!
I’ve been thinking about this lately because I gave an interview this week for an article and the author, very quickly, published it online and sent me a link. In his email to me, he gave me some information on what to include in my Tweet about it.
By the way, right after writing these introductory remarks to the privacy news, I’m going to remember to follow said advice and promote the article to my followers.
This has me thinking a bit about the sharing economy and how you’re somehow not fully participating in society unless you make at least some effort, contribute to the conversation in some way. Then you read the CBC article below about the threats used by criminals and other mischievous folks and wonder if it’s all worth it.
Too much thinking, frankly, for a rare sunny day in Ottawa in the middle of summer. Enjoy the Digest, catch up on some news and have a great weekend.
