This blog is about how our online presence affects our ability to maintain privacy and control of our personal information, what our service providers are doing to help (or what they aren’t doing), and current news on security breaches across different platforms.

I am Emmy Rinehart and the author of this blog. I am a Strategic Communications student at West Virginia University with an emphasis in public relations. I also have a minor in psychology. I am interested in the way that the internet affects the privacy and control of our information because as a PR person, every good business has an online presence, but when you’re working with clients, it’s a good idea to be informed on the current online climate, and security is a huge concern. I am also an avid social media user (as many of us are), so it is just as important for me to be informed as a personal user of these platforms so that I can best protect my own information as well.
