KMDI Speaker Series – Unpacking Social Media Privacy: Toward a More Nuanced Understanding with Dr. Jacquie Burkell

Submitted on Tuesday, November 07, 2017

Guest Speaker: Dr. Jacquelyn Burkell, Associate Professor, Faculty of Information & Media Studies, University of Western Ontario

Conceptions of privacy expectation and privacy practices of social media users are notoriously simple, ranging from bald statements that people “don’t care” about privacy to the slightly more nuanced understanding that attitudes range along a continuum of concern. Dr. Burkell will discuss a series of studies that use innovative qualitative approaches to unpack the notion of privacy, identifying the varying perspectives held by different social media users, and developing a deeper understanding of the privacy considerations that apply to different types of social media content.
