Jules’ thoughts on Facebook’s “Privacy Dinosaur”

Jules’ new article on LinkedIn discusses Facebook’s recent efforts to remind its users about adjusting the sharing settings on their posts. A pop-up notice with an illustrated dinosaur occasionally appears on a user’s home page when the user posts something publicly, and reminds the user about their option to keep the post limited to a smaller circle of friends if desired.

At the Washington Post Live All Things Connected Forum this week, FPF called for efforts to “poke and provoke” designers to get in the game on designing for usable privacy. The Facebook “Privacy Dinosaur” is just one example of how creative designers and technologists can advance transparency and privacy in a way everyday users can appreciate.
