INFOGRAPHIC: Facebook Users’ Bill Of Rights

With the issue of employers, school administrators, and others demanding users of Facebook and other social networks to surrender their passwords still festering, BackgroundCheck.org has proposed a bill of rights for social network users.

BackgroundCheck.org‘s proposed bill of rights reads as follows:

We, the users, expect social network sites to provide us the following rights in their terms of service, privacy policies, and implementations of their system:

1. Honesty: Honor your privacy policy and terms of service.
2. Clarity: Make sure that policies, terms of service, and settings are easy to find and understand.
3. Freedom of speech: Do not delete or modify my data without a clear policy and justification.
4. Empowerment: Support assistive technologies and universal accessibility.
5. Self-protection: Support privacy-enhancing technologies.

More details about this bill of rights appear in the infographic below. Let us know what you think of it all.
