Bill to Protect Social Media Data of Calif. Teens Moves Forward
Posted Thursday, April 3rd 2014 @ 6am  by KFBK News - Joe Michaels

A bill that would protect the social media data of California teens is moving forward

The bill, authored by Democratic Assemblyman Mike Gatto would create standards of privacy when it comes to school districts collecting and analyzing data that students post to social media websites like Facebook and Twitter.  

Approved Wednesday by the Assembly Judiciary Committee, it now heads to the Education Committee.  

Assemblyman Gatto says many young people might want to delete an embarrassing or controversial post from their past, and that information shouldn't be used to hurt students years later.
