4-1 Discussion:
Both Parts need to be completed. DO not choose what you want to complete
Part I:
In 2009, Mark Zuckerberg made sweeping changes to the privacy controls of Facebook, a leading social media company. Review the Shapiro Library business case study Facebook: The Evolution of Privacy?, which is based on this actual situation, and address these questions:
Briefly summarize the changes that were made to Facebook’s privacy controls in 2009.
According to different stakeholders, what were the key ethical or legal considerations associated with these changes or the way in which Zuckerberg communicated the changes?
How could the company have communicated its position more effectively in 2009?
Who do you think should deliver such messages from Facebook to its stakeholders (for example, the public) regarding new policies?
How do you think these messages could be better communicated in order to ensure ethical or legal practices?
During the 2016 United States presidential election, Facebook continued to be in the news. The site faced substantial controversy when foreign trolls used Facebook to impersonate U.S. identities and make posts and messages to pit Americans against each other.
What was the impact of this foreign trolling campaign, and what are some possible future consequences?
Did Facebook cross any legal or ethical boundaries in allowing this to happen? Refer to the Ethics in Business Communication learning resource to help you prepare your response.
Tip: Copy and paste each question and type your responses underneath.

Part II-
In your replies to at least two peers, use these questions to guide your responses:
Respond to your peers’ ideas on how Facebook, as a company, could have communicated its position more effectively in 2009. Which ideas do you think are most effective, and which ones would you change or revise?
Respond to your peers’ thoughts on the ethical or legal considerations regarding foreign interferences in United States elections through social media such as Facebook. Specifically, how could Facebook have avoided the legal and ethical missteps your peers discussed?
