There is a widespread myth that young people don't care about privacy. Embedded in this myth is an assumption that participation in public social media services indicates a rejection of privacy. Yet, just because people want to participate in public life doesn't mean that they want everything they do to go down on their permanent record or to be publicized for the whole world to see. This talk will examine the strategies that young people take to secure their privacy in highly public environments like Facebook and Twitter and why those in higher ed should care.

RT @derekbruff: HigherEd could pay more attention 2 social motivations 4 learning. C @cshirky's work: http://t.co/CL05PnI2 #edu #e11_gs02

RT @slrichter: #edu11 general session "Privacy in Era of Social Media" w. Danah Boyd http://t.co/Om3mXec7 #E11_GS02 [#mediasite webcast]

From using a parking lot as a place to gather socially away from parents and teachers where no conversation is recorded, to adopting use of online infrastructure as a place to gather socially because just like a parking lot it's free. Unlike a parking lot, (commercially subsidized) online infrastructure dramatically and significantly extends the duration of social interaction, up to 24x7x365 for kids whose guardians and teachers aren't otherwise requiring daily periods in an off-line status. Also, online infrastructure requires that everything be recorded.

RT @derekbruff: If we want to create learning communities that include our students, we need to understand how they "do" community. #edu11 #e11_gs02

RT @CompuWatcher: Social boundaries are moving to online equivalents. "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should." #edu11 #e11_gs02

Shifts in technology have consequences by breaking user expectations and social norms @zephoria #e11_gs02

@zephoria I'm interested in the teens not on Facebook. Are they more confident than their peers? Different in another way? #E11_GS02 #EDU11

When designing social media. Pick public or private. But don't change it after it's been released and in use. #EDU11 #e11_gs02

Teachers going to social sites of students is like showing up at their birthday party. @zephoria #E11_GS02 #EDU11

Drama is unavoidable on social networking sites @zephoria. #E11_GS02 #EDU11

People will use social networking sites, even if they don't trust them or even like them @zephoria #E11_GS02 #EDU11 #howtrue

Digital drama is not the same as cyber bullying but it's a thin line. @zephoria researching next #E11_GS02 #EDU11

Not hearing much new in the general session on privacy & social media. Probably because I'm a parent of twin HS seniors #EDU11 #E11_GS02

RT @derekbruff: That's why I think the idea of "digital natives" (if not the term itself) has value. Understanding students isn't trivial. #edu11 #e11_gs02

Collision of contexts makes enforcing social norms difficult. #edu11 #e11_gs02

Tactic: separating meaning from content. Content publicly accessible but meaning opaque @zephoria #e11_gs02

.@zephoria's social steganography concept blows my mind. I'm so impressed by young people's use of this strategy. #edu11 #e11_gs02

Although, I guess it do it, too. I'll post things that won't make sense of many Fb friends b/c they lack the right context. #edu11 #e11_gs02

Always look on the bright side of life. http://t.co/tWdfgdfj #EDU11 #e11_gs02

Irony: while listening to @zephoria talk about changing social norms, I have my mother-in-law commenting on my posts! #ironic #e11_gs02

@red_miller Agreed - It's a general message, but the specific stories are valuable. Hadn't heard of "white walling" before. #E11_GS02 #EDU11

#E11_GS02 #edu11 Boyd talks to teenagers, FB is my social place, no place for teachers or parents.

#E11_GS02 #edu11 Danah Boyd - Social Scientist. Privacy in an Era of Social Media - excellent!

I'm pretty sure I've used that same image of an eye in my presentations! #edu11 #e11_gs02

Yep, check out slide 2: http://t.co/CQxm22iE. Beautiful shot. #iheartphotography #edu11 #e11_gs02

Here's what I wonder about "privacy": Is it keeping information hidden? Or having the ability to keep info hidden? #edu11 #e11_gs02

That image is a little too "Human Centipede" for me. #edu11 #e11_gs02

.@zephoria's emphasizing the agency / control aspect of privacy, what I called the ability to keep info hidden. #edu11 #e11_gs02

“@derekbruff: That image is a little too "Human Centipede" for me. #edu11 #e11_gs02” my thoughts exactly

Wondering if @zephoria will use any social media in this talk (to engage the audience). #edu11 #e11_gs02
