A Moment of Privacy: Youth and Privacy

In this third video from our series A Moment of Privacy, Matthew Johnson, director of education at MediaSmarts, presents the report Young Canadians in a Wired World, Phase III.


Young people value their privacy. They care a lot about the image of themselves that people see online. They want to control who can see their photos and who can access all the different things they share online. For more information, go to MediaSmarts website.

The series A Moment of Privacy is meant to provide the general public with an overview of some of the privacy research projects conducted with the support of the Office of Privacy Commissioner Contributions Program. Each video will allow featured researchers the opportunity to explain, in simple terms, some of the results of their research.

This project has been funded by the Office of Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC); the views expressed herein are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect those of the OPC.
