Technology Law Review , July 2012, pp. 1-14. EBSCO host , url= Variety of myths and facts of social media The article addresses the myth of having privacy rights against social media companies. It mentions that privacy rights are not recognized by most constitutions and international human rights treaties. Furthermore, the article mentions that even if one finds privacy rights in a constitution, “one is not typically protected against companies or individual social media users” (Determann 2). Eddy, Nathan. "Social Media Users Fail to Protect Their Privacy: ESET." Eweek , 14 Nov. 2013, p. 14. EBSCO host , url= sh&AN=92903972&site=ehost-live&scope=site. Social media users are responsible for protecting their own privacy Social media users should be responsible for their own protection of privacy. The article mentions that users are not aware of social networking sites’ privacy policy, “…more than half of U.S. adult social network users say they have not read the most recent privacy policy for their social media accounts, according to a survey of more than 2,000 U.S adults commissioned by security firm ESET and conducted by Harris Interactive” (Eddy). Furthermore, more people believe that they are responsible for the protection of their privacy rather than the social network, “Sixty-four of respondents admitted that protecting their privacy online was a personal responsibility…twelve percent said it was the responsibility of social networks themselves” (Eddy).

Fox-Brewster, Thomas. "Facebook Is Playing Games with Your Privacy and There's Nothing You Can Do about It." Forbes.Com , 29 June 2016, p. 11. EBSCO host , sh&AN=116520858&site=ehost-live&scope=site. Facebook messes with users’ privacy even after agreeing to their privacy terms Fox-Brewster mentions that Facebook “plays games” with users as they test users’ notions of what’s acceptable privacy-wise. Facebook admitted to using users’ location to suggest friends as well as other factors such as work, education information, and mutual friends. Fox-Brewster mentions that Facebook later denied this activity and has yet to comment on the issue. Fox- Brewster carried out experiments on his own and discovered that his “private profile” is not truly private, “Last week, I reviewed my privacy settings in an attempt to ensure my profile couldn’t be found, only to discover that the ability to stop anyone finding me by searching my name had been removed” (Fox-Brewster).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
