ideas, innovations and apps for social work in the age of smartphones and social media
Do you read and understand the terms and conditions of the digital services you use? I must admit: I don’t read them. Nevertherless I usually agree. If you want a deeper insight into this and what this means for all of us have a look at the documentary “Terms and Conditions May Apply”. Here a short description from the makers of the film:
Admit it: you don’t really read the endless terms and conditions connected to every website you visit, phone call you make or app you download. But every day, billion-dollar corporations are learning more about your interests, your friends and family, your finances, and your secrets… and are not only selling the information to the highest bidder, but freely sharing it with the government. And you agreed to all of it. With fascinating examples and so-unbelievable-they’re-almost-funny facts, filmmaker Cullen Hoback exposes what governments and corporations are legally taking from you every day – turning the future of both privacy and civil liberties uncertain. From whistle blowers and investigative journalists to zombie fan clubs and Egyptian dissidents, this disquieting exposé demonstrates how every one of us has incrementally opted-in to a real-time surveillance state, click by click- and what, if anything, can be done about it.
