Should we be worried about big data mining and monitoring? What practical steps can we take to avoid risks of exploitation? What social norms are emerging on social media platforms? How should we behave when we use them? What do we like about what other people do? What annoys us? Share views on the benefits and the dis-benefits of this invasive medium in our lives.

Discussion Point ONE - ​Are we afraid?
​​Each participant will be given an opportunity to share what scares them most about social media and using the internet? Financial exploitation? Data mining? Privacy intrusion? Stolen identity? What is that influences your decisions and why?

One of the main purposes of gathering our information is so that social media platforms can target advertising, i.e. streamline putting forward products and services that interest. Is this okay? If so, why? If not, why?
