Regular readers of this blog should be aware that SocialSafe recently became one of the founding partners of the Respect Network, whose core principle is to empower and encourage individuals to #TakeBackControl of their privacy and data.
To remind us that we as individuals need to take steps to protect our privacy, the Respect Network has created this simple but emotionally provoking video: “Who’s Watching You—John Hurt Asks You to #TakeBackControl”
Hopefully this video should remind you all that what you put online seldom stays private. Despite our best intentions, whenever we post things online or submit information to a third-party, our personal information is often available to a much larger number of people than we’d originally intended.
Here at SocialSafe we are proud to be a Respect Network founding partner, and believe that being able to #TakeBackControl is just the start. Once you have your personal data under your own control, then you can begin to do more with it.
We have started to make this possible for our users in terms of their social network data with the SocialSafe application. By backing up your own local copy of the content from your social networks, you can then search across all of your networks at once, create collections of content export raw data, PDFs and so on.
