This week we were asked by Facebook to claim our Facebook Place. This new feature will now allow people to "check-in" at our location and get promotional offers or talk about their experiences here.
Wondering if we can get in legal hot water for violating student privacy laws I checked to see if we could turn off check-in's at this location. After searching through the control panel I saw no way to turn this off. So I assume that Facebook figures that if you sign up for the location services you are accepting responsibility.
So in our continuing efforts to keep students safe on campus I would like to share this article from Lina at Lavasoft containing tips on how to protect your privacy.
