Hi,
 
Regrets if this is duplication or "old news" but, in contrast with the media
coverage (high, TechCrunch, even CBS News) I have not seen (any) traffic on
the SWXG list about Facebook's recent (July 1) press conference/announcement
on the topic of the Future of Privacy (I quite like the title ;-).
Apparently this news conference was conducted shortly after our July 1 (most
recent) meeting.
 
Slides here [1] 
 
The first phase of this new program was a 1 week trial with 40,000 US only
users. That should expand to 80,000 users today and be available
internationally.
 
Don't have time to do the in-depth research which this topic clearly
deserves so not sure the best page to point for more information on the
details, but I found these [2], [3] quite useful. 
 
On the same topic, have those on the list concerned with Privacy in Social
Networks already found this paper [4] by Chris Petersen?
 
This is his undergraduate honors thesis for the University of
Massachusetts-Amherst Legal Studies Department
 
Perhaps there should be some contact with him [5] or with the Chief Privacy
Office of Facebook, Chris Kelly. Invited Speakers?
