As police increasingly use social media for surveillance and monitoring, Shobita Parthasarathy, professor of public policy and director of the Science, Technology, and Public Policy Program, calls for legislative action to protect citizens' online privacy.

“I tend to think that policy action is the way to go because we are increasingly living our lives online,” she said. “The person who says ‘no I don’t want you to put a picture of me on Facebook’ becomes the one who appears increasingly out of step and that affects our social relationships.”
