#pathonly: Social's Shift Towards Real Privacy

A session at SXSW Interactive 2013

Friday 8th March, 2013

5:00pm to 6:00pm (CST)

Dave Morin and Path have always maintained that privacy controls should be simple and that your data always belongs to you. Discover why building privacy and control directly into a product from the start is essential; explore alternative ways to share your information with friends and family in a private and contextual manner; learn about the importance of maintaining closer, private connections. Our social interactions should feel human again. Dave will discuss why social technology should be an extension of our real-life interactions and how networks can and should design for ease-of-use while empowering the user to be in control of their data.

This shift - back to human interactions and control over privacy - is quickly approaching. Are mobile and social companies ready for the switch?
