Presentations of ‘For Your Eyes Only’ conference
During the ‘For Your Eyes Only’ conference on the 29th and the 30th of November in Brussels, many possible strategies to cope with privacy and security needs in online social networks were debated. Experts and researchers discussed technical, social, educational and legal measures to mitigate the responsibility of the users (SPION project) and to empower the users of social networking sites (EMSOC project).

This panel explores the roles of the different actors (e.g., government, SNS providers, parents, children themselves) in the empowerment and protection of young people in the context of online social networks. Based on insights into the behavior and privacy concerns of young SNS users, the panelists provide a critical analysis of the current and future legal frameworks, as well as the self-regulatory and bottom-up initiatives that aim to protect and/or empower children and teenagers.

If you’re not paying for it, you’re the product” has become a widespread buzz-phrase to refer to a business model popularized by Facebook, but also other Internet startups. This mantra reflects a “reality” in which the emphasis is on the economic utility of personal data. Starting from this point, the panel explores whether vesting a property right in personal data may empower users of social media, and how such a right would relate to the conventional protection that is offered by traditional human rights law mechanisms. The panelists, who come from European and US American perspectives, debate whether the two rights are uneasy bedfollows, or if they can happily live (apart) together.
