YPG Digital Presents September’s BBL: Now You See Me, Now You Don’t: Social Media, Privacy, & You

Cincopa video hosting solution for your website. Another great product from Cincopa Send Files.

In this age of ever-expanding social media platforms, what are the boundaries of our privacy? Learn about and discuss the importance of media freedoms, the impact of differing viewpoints of “surveillance,” some of the more recent interesting cases, generational shifts in the sharing and divulging of information, and the role of publishers in that space. Featured speaker Jonathan Bloom, Esq., Counsel, Weil, Gotshal & Manges, will address issues such as:

  • How is the pervasiveness of the Internet and new mobile communications technology affecting our idea of public versus private?
  • Does our increased interconnectedness, and the fact that everyone with an iPhone can become an instantaneous publisher or paparazzo, represent a fundamental     change in the relationship between the individual and society?
  • Has the prevalence of smartphones and the routine sharing of pictures and/or personal information on social networking sites, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, YouTube, etc. altered our conception of personal privacy or just made its protection more important and challenging?
  • What effect, if any, has this phenomenon had on our conception of newsworthiness?
  • And how, if at all, are these developments affecting book publishing?

Join YPG Digital for an interactive Brown Bag Lunch on the issue of Privacy and Social Media on Wednesday, September 25th from 12:30-1:30pm in the AAP New York offices (71 Fifth Avenue, 2nd floor, NYC) with followed by a Q&A. Please RSVP HERE to attend and submit questions. Hope to see you there!
