Your privacy, your responsibility says Ontario Privacy Commissioner

Facebook is Canada's favourite social network, but it's also in hot water over possibly breaching our privacy laws.


While the incredibly popular network (just recently passing the 100 million user mark half of which visit the site daily) is being investigated by the federal privacy commissioner based on a complaint from an advocacy group, they are working hand-in-hand with Ontario's privacy commissioner, Ann Cavoukian.

The unlikely duo have been working together for about two years. They've produced pamphlets and tip sheets on how users can keep their privacy in tact on Facebook. Now they're also released a video featuring Cavoukian alongside Chris Kelley, the chief privacy officer at Facebook.


I just want people to make conscious decisions about what they post on their profile. It's not that social networks are bad. They're not. Facebook is great, everybody loves it. But I want you to think before you post so you're making a conscious decision and you don't put information out there that might come back to hurt you.
