Around the world, technology has rapidly become adjusted to a life that is online. Almost everything we do- whether it be shopping, communicating or entertainment it is all through our phones or computer. In this post, there will be three main concepts that relate to Digital Privacy such as: Data, Flow and Agency. These three aspects are important to know when it comes to writing online in a digital space. Two major aspects of exercising more control over the information you share online: 1) gaining knowledge about a technology or platform’s data gathering practices, and 2) using this information to exert the most amount of control over your personal information possible in your writing practices.

What exactly is Privacy, Data, Agency and Flow?

The main question to ask ourselves is “You will want to try to discover what data is being gathered, how it is used, and with whom it is shared.” Before breaking down the 3 main concepts for digital privacy we must understand the word privacy. Digital Privacy can mean many different things, but it is a term that everyone has a right too. Privacy plays a role in any digital activity and it shapes the way we write and our writing process. When we think about our own privacy three concepts may come to mind: Data, Agency and Flow. All of these concepts work together but in different ways in order to track down all of our activity online.
