Privacy: what went down

Since the Facebook privacy scandal news broke, I have been collecting articles from a variety of sources and writers representing different perspectives. As summer draws to a close, and things are somewhat quieter on this front, I decided to share my list of articles. This list is not intended to be a complete listing of “what went down” but provide readers with a broad range of perspectives with the intent of raising awareness to privacy issues. Do your part: be aware, stay current, be as safe as you can.
