(1)   Has Facebook gone too far by collecting the facial imprints?  (2)   Has the federal government gone too far in invading your privacy? (3)   Can you assume Facebook will find a commercial use for those facial prints? 

You’ll read three articles that are attached

The first is on the FBI and their use of facial recognition, the second is on Facebook’s photo tagging feature (just to give you some background), and the third is on a typical lawsuit faced by Facebook.  Once you read the three articles, create a post which discusses some of the following questions:

(1)   Has Facebook gone too far by collecting the facial imprints?

(2)   Has the federal government gone too far in invading your privacy?

(3)   Can you assume Facebook will find a commercial use for those facial prints?

(4)   If a Facebook user agrees to the terms of use by clicking the “I Accept” button when creating a Facebook account, is that enough disclosure on the part of the company?

(5)   Do you think Facebook will win this lawsuit?

(6)   Will other states adopt their own biometrics laws similar to those in Illinois?
