The ethical limits of (social) media

Campus: Brussels Humanities, Sciences & Engineering campus

Social media present an exciting platform for people to interact. Facebook, Twitter, MySpace etc. are considered as public spaces. However, these spaces are controlled by private investors out for profit. Social networking sites blur the lines between personal and public behavior. Whose information are you sharing anyway? Does the technology make us more conscious of our actions? Does the fact that our ministers tweet, enhances our trust in the policymaking process? This Campustalks addresses the ethical challenges of social media for researchers, journalists, artists, law practitioners, policymakers, employers and employees, educators and students, parents and kids.
