Presentation on safe and responsible social media

8/25/2011 —

According to recent statistics, more than 750 million people use Facebook and there are 175 million registered users on Twitter who share information with friends, family and sometimes strangers. Is this a safe thing to do? Cory Winter, an attorney with Saul Ewing, L.L.P., will present “Social Media and You” at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus on Thursday, Sept. 8, at noon in Swimmer Hall in the Williams Building. The event is free and open to the public. Winter will talk about how to keep information private and how to use social media responsibly.

Chad Long, assistant director of student affairs says he wanted to ask Winter to visit campus to share his insights on social media because it is a topic that affects students and members of the community on a daily basis. “Often, people display personal information without thinking twice about who can access it including total strangers. I hope not only students, but also members of the community will take away the knowledge on how to protect themselves.”

Winter is an associate in the litigation department at Saul Ewing where his area of expertise is commercial litigation. He is also a pro bono committee member at the firm.
