[Facebook example is a good example of how people are oblivious to personal information being collected from them] O' Bien, Deirdre and Ann M. Torres.

Awareness of privacy within Facebook users’ and how their behavior is influenced by this awareness Reasons as what creates fear in the online world includes, “lack of physical contact, loss in social cues and limited web interface” (O’Brien and Torres). These reasons contribute to “creating an unknown environment and unfamiliar process which leads to fear and uncertainty” (O’Brien and Torres). Privacy concerns are considered the greatest barrier in online trust due to the lack of unified provisions of who communicates with whom. To continue privacy concerns include, “online information collection techniques such as cookie technology involving extreme surveillance” (O’Brien and Torres).

Institutional privacy is related to the historical need to process large amounts of personal data, to what happens with the data and how these processes objectify users in two ways: they are reduced to a fixed identity, and their online data are being surveilled (by governments) and commodified (by corporations) often without their knowledge” (O’Hara, Nguyen, C, and Haynes 271).

    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.
