With the issue of employers, school administrators, and others demanding users of Facebook and other social networks to surrender their passwords still festering, BackgroundCheck.org has proposed a bill of rights for social network users.
BackgroundCheck.org‘s proposed bill of rights reads as follows:
We, the users, expect social network sites to provide us the following rights in their terms of service, privacy policies, and implementations of their system:
2. Clarity: Make sure that policies, terms of service, and settings are easy to find and understand.
3. Freedom of speech: Do not delete or modify my data without a clear policy and justification.
4. Empowerment: Support assistive technologies and universal accessibility.
5. Self-protection: Support privacy-enhancing technologies.
More details about this bill of rights appear in the infographic below. Let us know what you think of it all.
