From kindergarten through our professional life, sharing binds us together as friends, colleagues, and collaborators, so perhaps it should be no surprise that online sharing through services like Facebook, Twitter, and email shapes our online social life. Yet sharing online is anything but simple.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
Today, at the Internet Identity Workshop, we officially launch the Standard Information Sharing Label, which makes it easy for websites to say in simple, consistent language what they do with our information, making it easier for individuals to make better decisions about the information we share online.
The work is free to use and open to collaborators.
In all my years contributing to the VRM conversation, few projects have made me as proud as I am of the work behind the Standard Label.
Check it out. If you like it, please spread the word and consider chipping into help take this work to the next level.
