The Internet, Facebook & Cambridge Analytica

What is happening with Facebook and Cambridge Analytica? Try and summarize with sources.

How do you feel about Facebook? What is your opinion about what they do? Should your online information be private? Do you care if companies know things about you? Any personal opinions? **Even if you don’t have an account, you still know about Facebook.**

Mark Zuckerberg testified in front of congress – find any relevant clip and react to to him and/or the clips.

Read these articles and incorporate it into your writing:

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/mar/28/all-the-data-facebook-google-has-on-you-privacy?CMP=twt_gu

What did Cambridge Analytica do? Is it a big deal what they did? Is this a big ol’ bag of nothing? Write more than these prompts.

Do you believe the CA whistleblower, Christopher Wylie? What is your impression of him?

Why do you think this story HAD legs but now has moved from the CA/FB link to just tech companies in general?

Find your own research articles (at least 1) and clips on your own (at least 2) and discuss the issues.

There’s more to this story so write about it!

This is the last blog before the final one, you should be good at this by now… your TA will respond giving you any last minute tips or suggestions.

Word Count: 1000+

See ya on Thursday!
