Nowakowski 1 Ally Nowakowski Mr. Paramo English 1320 26 September 2018 Annotated Bibliographies Regarding Articles Related to Facebook Privacy Drake, John. “Asking for Facebook Logins: An Egoist Case for Privacy.” Journal of Business Ethics , vol. 139, no. 3, Dec. 2016, pp. 429–441. EBSCOhost , doi:10.1007/s10551-015- 2586-4. In “Asking for Facebook Logins: An Egoist Case for Privacy”, John R. Drake impartially scrutinizes the ethicality of employers asking for login information to widely accessed social media networking networking sites, specifically regarding the concepts of egoism and an objectivistic perspective. Due to the largely complex conceptual philosophical analyses found within this article, the author likely intends to address this article to philosophy enthusiasts who may have the ability to expand upon the information presented throughout it and produce positive change regarding ethical principles and privacy as they relate to social media websites. Drake introduces the concern of such actions and then carefully dissects different perspectives regarding egotism, such as the suggestion by Sarathy and Robertson, which asserted that egotism leads businesses to gain as much information as possible with little to no regard for privacy. Additionally, Drake consistently paraphrases quotes from figures in business and studies to highlight a variety of different perspectives regarding ethics and business, such as that of Ayn Rand, writer and founder of the concept of objectivism, which claims that her ethics are rational self-interest.

Subsequently, Drake analyzes Rand’s ethical theory of objectivism, which argues that ethical principles should be objectively developed by facts, and later circumnavigates the focus back to privacy concerns on Facebook, specifically with reference to Rand’s theory. Drake’s analytical examination of such matters serves as a proponent for the defense of privacy of individuals from employers seeking short-term gains from social media, since users aim to protect their personal information out of justified self-interest. Rather, he suggests, the philosophy of the idea of objectivism is for businesses and individuals to instead maintain focus on long-term success. Heirman, Wannes, et al. “An Open Book on Facebook?

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
