Understanding Understanding

Have you ever read the terms and conditions to the social media accounts you have?

Neither do most people. Jocelyn Paez, Earl Whittemore and I wanted to find out if incoming Michigan State freshman knew what they were getting themselves into when they use social media.

We now live in a digital age where everything that we share on the internet is there forever. It is important for future generations to realize how important digital privacy is. But most people don’t understand what they are signing up for when they click the accept button.

While interviewing incoming freshman during their orientation, we found four major misconceptions. The video below emphasizes the four misconceptions, in addition to teaching everyone how to be more cautious of the things you share on the internet.

To find out more about these misconceptions, research on digital privacy and social media and to see how we interviewed the incoming freshman check out our website.
