In het verlengde van mijn bericht van vanmorgen ligt de "Social Networks Bill of Rights" waar tijdens SXSW over gesproken is. Deze 'wet' omvat veertien artikelen:
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:
- Clarity: Make sure that policies, terms of service, and settings are easy to find and understand
- Freedom of speech: Do not delete or modify my data without a clear policy and justification
- Empowerment : Support assistive technologies and universal accessibility
- Self-protection: Support privacy-enhancing technologies
- Data minimization: Minimize the information I am required to provide and share with others
- Control: Let me control my data, and don’t facilitate sharing it unless I agree first
- Predictability: Obtain my prior consent before significantly changing who can see my data.
- Data portability: Make it easy for me to obtain a copy of my data
- Protection: Treat my data as securely as your own confidential data unless I choose to share it, and notify me if it is compromised
- Right to know: Show me how you are using my data and allow me to see who and what has access to it.
- Right to self-define: Let me create more than one identity and use pseudonyms. Do not link them without my permission.
- Right to appeal: Allow me to appeal punitive actions
- Right to withdraw: Allow me to delete my account, and remove my data
Blijkbaar kunnen we tot 15 juni 2011 stemmen over deze wet via de volgende kanalen:
- Facebook – like the #BillOfRights page to vote ‘yes’
- Facebook – like the No to the Social Network Users’ Bill of Rights page to vote ‘no’
- Twitter – tweet the following to @cfpconf: “yes” to the #BillOfRights http://act.ly/23h
- Twitter – tweet the following to @cfpconf: “no” to the #BillOfRights http://act.ly/23i
- Doodle – vote on the poll by name or pseudonymously
Het idee is natuurlijk dat de grote en kleine sociale netwerken de 'wet' omarmen, waardoor het voor ons allemaal beter wordt.
