Amsterdam Privacy Conference 7-10 October 2012

On October 9, 2012 Priscilla Regan will deliver a keynote speech on legislating privacy at the Amsterdam Privacy Conference.  Later that day, Dr. Regan will participate with Jane Bailey, Jacquie Burkell and Val Steeves in the panel presentation “Living in the Mirror:  Privacy and Young People in Social Networks”.  The panel will address the social contexts in which young people make decisions about privacy on social networking sites (SNS), and the kinds of practices and decision making they rely on when negotiating identity through online publication.  During the presentation, they will report recent findings on young people’s use of SNS, the online negotiation of gender, and the psychology of revealing information electronically, and provide a window on the value placed on privacy by young people in networked spaces.  To learn more about this work, click here.
