Lori Andrews: "Facebook is Using You"
"Facebook Is Using You" was presented by Lori Andrews, law professor, author, and Director of the Institute for Science, Law, and Technology at the Illinois Institute of Technology Chicago-Kent College of Law.
Facebook and other online networks make money by selling ad space to companies that want to reach us. The magnitude of information such companies have about each of us is stunning. Professor Andrews discussed how we can be affected by what is known about us—our browsing behavior, what we post, even what other people post—and who knows it.
The talk was part of the annual Institute for Computer Policy and Law (ICPL), held September 19-21, 2012.

The University Computer Policy and Law Program's (UCPL) mission is to further information technologies ethics education. Typically, UCPL sponsors three or four speakers a semester for both small workshops and university lectures on topics such as digital copyright and libraries, Internet privacy and security, disability access technologies, logging and monitoring of network flow data, compliance strategies with relevant laws and campus IT policies and policy development. Complicated legal and policy issues require the expression of a variety of voices, perspectives and opinions. UCPL respects this diversity of opinion and desires to encourage campus community discussion and debate on these topics.
