Safety and security in Social Media Week

I attended this event (see the video below) with chums at Rory Peck Trust, hosted by the Swedish Embassy UK. I take a more wary approach to social media and it’s supposed potential at democracy building, but it is definitely the way to get your message out when and if you have one. We all use it, especially yours truly, to bang on about whatever it is we think is important at any given moment. But those with more resources upscale faster, and are able to make their voices louder. And there’s also the issue that, unlock a box at speaker’s corner, there are more ways for someone speaking their mind in the cyber space to be tracked, followed, monitored and categorized.
