Hope vs Fear: Privacy challenges in online health communities.

Twitter Summary: The difficulty in creating privacy controls in online health communities represents the struggle between hope and fear.

I have a new post up at blog@CACM, “Hope vs Fear: Privacy challenges in online health communities.”  The post was inspired by all the controversy surrounding Facebook privacy updates which reminded me of  my previous startup which also struggled with defining how much privacy our customers wanted in the website.  My advice is to not post anything you don’t think will be seen by your mom, and at the same time to absolutely post stuff that your mom will see how you are your own person.
