The first public Amplified Leicester meeting will feature Leicester-based social media consultant Josie Fraser, who will speak on Amplified Individual: Is Privacy Dead?
Being present and collaborating online is increasingly part of our daily social and economic lives. The ability to connect with others, to share information and communicate at professional and organisational levels across technological platforms have been identified as critical skills for the future workplace and of the amplified individual. This talk looks at the impacts and current discussions about what being so visible online has on our understanding of personal privacy and what being an amplified individual might mean terms of shifting social practices.
