Privacy Principles for Social Networks

German Informatics (GI) working group on Privacy and IT Security is warning about the risks associated with the use of social media on private data protection. Indeed many social networks aim to collect the most comprehensive set of personal data for commercial purposes. GI’s working group calls on for the adoption of key principles by social media platforms to improve protection of personal data. These principles include the right to portability, i.e. the ability to move data to another social media platform, and the right to be forgotten, i.e. the ability to delete personal data permanently. More on Social Media Privacy Concerns
