"How Facebook and Twitter Are Redefining Freedom and Responsibility"  by Lori Andrews

Lori Andrews, author of "I Know Who You Are and I Saw What You Did: Social Networks and the Death of Privacy," will discuss  "How Facebook and Twitter Are Redefining Freedom and Responsibility." Andrews' talk is part of this year's University Theme, "Freedom and Responsibility."

"Facts about our travels across the Web are collected daily-without our consent-via cookies, web beacons, scrapers and other tracking mechanisms." "As many individuals have already learned the hard way, the same power of information sharing that can topple governments can also topple a person's career, marriage, finances, or even his or her future.

To advocate protections, Andrews is currently writing a Constitution covering social networks, with ten propositions, from The Right to Privacy of Place and Information, to The Right to Control One's Image.

Andrews is the author of ten nonfiction books and three novels. She frequently appears on television, including "60 Minutes," "Good Morning America" and "Nightline." She has written for publications that include Playboy, Parade, New York, Vogue, Glamour, Self, The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune and Psychology Today.
