Freedom to reveal
Why do we reveal our lives on the Internet? Setting boundaries for workplace surveillance. Obfuscation and personal strategy, or how to play hide and seek on the Web.
Unmasking ourselves online is a simultaneous act of self-expression and a request for recognition, a chance to "project" ourselves by creating a multifaceted ever-changing digital self-portrait while interacting with others.
Staying informed is OK, spying is not CNIL, the French data privacy watchdog, is keeping an eye on things to push back against abusive surveillance in the workplace. Businesses are adjusting to increased data circulation between the personal and professional realms.
Even though the odds are stacked against them, online users are not at a loss for tools and strategies for keeping their data private.
