“There is no invasion of privacy because there is no privacy on Facebook” said Facebook counsel Orin Snyder. Tash Whitaker, Global Data Privacy Director Whitaker Solutions Ltd, looks at the concept of anonymity and why anonymous rarely means anonymous. Using case studies from popular social media sites, we look at the public perception vs the various global definitions of what it means to anonymise data. Facebook has an average of 27,000 data points per user and Mumsnet has 14 million subscribers and 1 million posts per month. Tash discusses anonymized data and whether this assures online privacy.
