关于Facebook，我对监控和隐私有一些担忧。首先，所有的公共信息都被Facebook所使用，它也向广告商提供同样的信息。这是为了确保广告商能够使用这些信息，客户可以得到他们需要的东西。Facebook向这些广告商提供的信息包含了广泛的数据，比如用户的背景、照片、搜索以及他们喜欢的页面。这让我很不舒服。有时，访问Facebook上的某些页面对用户来说是必要的。当信息被提供给广告商时，用户的信息将面临隐私问题。这也导致了监视问题，正如David Lyon在他关于监视的文章中所引用的。他指出，承认监视社会是一种现代化产品有助于避免两大陷阱(里昂，2008)。这些陷阱被称为监视，是邪恶阴谋的结果。这个阴谋是由邪恶势力策划的，监视被认为是新技术的唯一产物。然而，Facebook将监控视为获取效率、协调和控制的渴望(Lyon, 2008)。例如，Facebook宣称它必须在更大范围内收集个人信息。不过，该公司这样做是为了保持竞争力。我在公司遇到的另一个问题是从学生的角度来看的。学生隐私问题是我最关心的问题。在Facebook上发布非法信息已经成为一种趋势，因为它赋予了人们权力。我发现的另一个问题是，我的账户被错误地暂停，我账户的私人身份被强迫。这是因为我没有放弃与私人身份相关的信息(Lyon, 2008)。我没有放弃这些信息，并且受到了永久性的限制。没有另一种方法可以获得相同的结果。更值得注意的是，当用户首次签署个人资料时，Facebook不需要发布这些信息。有了这种类型的个人数据，总有可能对个人造成严重伤害(Lyon, 2008)。我要说的这一举动不仅在本质上是专横的，而且是带有侵犯隐私性质的。另一方面，还有一些著名的网站通过电话或通过电子邮件发送确认邮件来要求身份验证。
In relation to Facebook, there are some concerns which I have over surveillance and privacy. The first is that all the public information is used by Facebook and it provides the same to advertisers. This is to ensure that advertisers are able to use this information and customers can get what they require. The information provided by Facebook to these advertisers consists of a wide range of data such as background of the person, their photos, the searches and pages that they like. This makes me really uncomfortable. At times, accessing some pages on Facebook is a necessity for users. When information is provided to advertisers, the information of the users is at stake leading towards privacy issues. This also leads towards surveillance issues as quoted by David Lyon in his article on surveillance. He states that acknowledging surveillance society as a modernity product helps in avoiding 2 essential traps (Lyon, 2008). These traps are known as surveillance as a result of malign plot. The plot is hatched by evil powers and surveillance is noted as the sole product of newer technologies. Facebook however takes surveillance as a desire to obtain efficiencies, coordination and also control (Lyon, 2008). For example, Facebook states that it has to amass individual information over a larger scale. The company however is doing this to remain competitive. Another issue that I have faced with the company is from the perspective of being a student. Student privacy concerns are at the forefront for me. Posting illegal information has been a trend on Facebook because it gives people power. Another issue I found is that my account was wrongfully suspended and private identification of my account was coerced. This was because I did not give up the information related to private identification (Lyon, 2008). I did not give up such information and suffered restriction of permanent nature. There was no alternate way to retrieve the same. It further becomes worthy noting that Facebook doesn’t need releasing this information when users first sign for the profile. With such type of individual data, there is always a potential of serious harm to individuals (Lyon, 2008). The move I will say is not only presumptuous but also dictatorial in nature with privacy related offensive invasion. On the other hand, there are other famous websites which ask for identity verification either through phone or sending a confirmation mail over e-mail.
