Prompt – Answer one or more of the following questions to complete this discussion:

Do you believe that the government, police agencies, or corporations have a right to invade people’s privacy without their consent?

Have you ever had any privacy or content concerns with your cell phone use? Did the claims of either of these essays/articles make an impact on you?

Do you read the entire user agreement when you download apps to your phone or join a social media site? Why or why not? Does the information in these articles shock you or not?

Do you agree with Robert D. Stuart that Law Enforcement needs to establish appropriate controls over the use of social media? Why or why not? Can there be a compromise?

In recent years social media sites have established “Fact Checkers” which have been seen by some as essential to weeding out false information while others see it as a way to censor and block information that the site administrators do not agree with. Do you believe that “Fact Checkers” are a good thing for social media?
