Happy New Year to all !
This year 2016 starts with an important campaign for online Privacy. This January we are celebrating the Online Privacy Month. It’s a campaign to make users and makers of the web care, learn, teach and share about Online Privacy.
Learn and share your thoughts about current trends and future issues for privacy and the steps we we can take today against privacy infringements. Privacy Month is the first of many steps we’ll be taking this year in an effort to empower the users of the web to protect their privacy and control their digital footprint.
January Privacy Month Campaign is a community led campaign/initiative to celebrate International Data Privacy Day. The campaign was originated by Mozilla India and is intended to be a global campaign. Communities from all over the world can participate. Please see below for the ways you can get involved. Volunteers are welcome to help with online posts, events, teaching kits and other resources, localization, and more.
The Campaign has 2 parts:
1. Online: January 2016 Online 31 Teachable Moments.
The goal of the online campaign is to provide a privacy tip a day that an average user could complete in 10 minutes or less. Tips will be shared through social media, such as Facebook and Twitter.
Want to get Involved, here is how.
2. Offline: Host a Popup or community event to teach privacy.
The community will be hosting in-person privacy events throughout the month of January. The team hopes this project will go global and include Mozilla community privacy events from around the world. You can help us by hosting online privacy focused events in your neighborhood, school, city or region.
Do share your experiences with us using hash tags: #PrivacyMonth #Advocate4Privacy.
