Mobile Safety

The dominant trend on the Web is for tools to be simplified and for settings and the details of their functions to be hidden. A user will log into Facebook’s mobile application only once, and won’t care that their tweets and Google+ postings show their exact location. In fact, some of the functions of Web 2.0 tools (especially those on mobile phones) are appealing because that they personalize content without the user having to expend any effort. As a result, and for a variety of reasons, social and political activists use these same tools to connect with their audiences. With the help of mobile applications, this group makes itself present on social media, taking advantage of the large audiences it finds online to advance its own goals for outreach. In addition, a social activist can use the applications on their mobile phone to take photos and video, record sound, and coordinate with others. Nevertheless, it’s important to keep in mind that a social activist and the average user have very different needs when it comes to these applications. Whereas the average user prefers convenience over the protection of their privacy, a social activist who unsuspectingly allows their location or their identity to be revealed can place themselves or their group in a great deal of danger. This instructional course will teach social activists how to use tools that weren't originally made for them, as well as how to pursue their activism in environments that have been optimized for other uses.
