What does your Facebook say about you?

This was a session led by Lyn Parker and me on 10 June 2008 at Sheffield University; an event of the Information Literacy Network of CILASS (Centre for Inquiry Based Learning in the Arts and Social Sciences). We were highlighting some issues concerning privacy, data protection, intellectual property, social/academic roles etc.
I have put the PowerPoint on Slideshare, and this includes slides which record points raised by participants in the session (who were a mixture of lecturers and other staff at the university, plus one student): The same evening there was a discussion with a few people (from the USA) on the same topic, but held in the virtual world, Second Life. There is a transcript of the session at

No status update on your Facebook profile?
