CIPR Co-Director Michael Zimmer Featured in Chronicle of Higher Education on Privacy & Research on Facebook
The Chronicle of Higher Education has published an article featuring CIPR Co-Director Michael Zimmer's research critiquing the privacy protections and research methods related to the “Taste, Ties, and Time” (T3) Facebook research study conducted by a set of Harvard sociologists.
Michael Zimmer, a privacy scholar at the U. of Wisconsin at Milwaukee Center for Information Policy Research, says the methods of the Harvard project "should have triggered an ethical concern."
The article, “Harvard Researchers Accused of Breaching Students’ Privacy”, discusses a variety of privacy and research ethics concerns raised by Zimmer, and also features insights by former CIPR director Elizabeth Buchanan.
