“We The Users” A Social Network User’s Bill of Rights

June 21, 2010

Most of us belong to at least one social network: Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Foursquare, etc. Recently, some of us have become a little irked with the social networks we use, namely Facebook’s privacy issues.

This is why a number of social network users met in San Jose, CA for the annual Computers, Freedom and Privacy (CFP) Conference to discuss the creation of a Social Network User’s Bill of Rights. You can follow what people are saying about the Bill on Twitter (#BillOfRights).

The document begins “We the Users…” and outlines what users have come to expect from social networks. The hot topics include honesty, transparency, privacy, disclosure and control. You can voice your opinion of the bill by voting on the petition here.
