b) Have you managed to exercise your right to be forgotten, where you

*As the adage goes, “the internet doesn’t forget”. Many have been
adversely affected in their careers and or personal lives over stands they
held as younger immature individuals. Despite have made a step out of those
stands, the past inadvertently comes back to haunt them through an FB post.
The documentary ” Facebook follies” has some examples.*
> c) Have you managed to exercise your right to modify or restrict the
> consent you previously granted to FB?
*This goes far beyond only that given to FB. There has been instances of
love affairs gone south and a one decides to “punish” the other by posting
very personal photos. On the other side there are those fake accounts that
use other people’s identities eg photo to purport to be them, FB has many a
time failed to act and people’s lives have been messed. *
> You can still comment on yesterday’s topic under that thread. Otherwise,

> thread so tomorrow we discuss “Human Rights & Transparency” matters.
> Wonderful Thursday!
> Rest of the Program:
> Day 3: Human Rights & Transparency
> Day 4: Connectivity & Wrap Up
