Security 177 – Social Media and Privacy

 

Talk given on April 17th, 2018 at the East Brunswick Public Library on Security and privacy. We did a very introductory topic of what it means to share your data with social media services. We discussed what it means to assess risk, what Facebook has, how tracking and advertising works, and what to do moving forward. Again, this is very introductory.
