Wishfie, a popular video-based social network that allows people to share their opinions on trending stories, news and issues, has announced that it’ll invite its users to help define the data use policy for the platform. Wishfie will become one of the first social platforms globally to introduce such an initiative.
“While it’s a complex mission, we hope to make progress on this with the help of our users. “ he added.
Wishfie users will be able to login into Wishfie’s website to either propose a new term or to discuss terms proposed by other users.
To make this initiative successful, Kaushik intends to leverage his experience of social networks and privacy research projects he undertook at University of California – Irvine and New York University. At UCI, he worked on a project called MayaNet that explored the possibilities of such a democratic privacy and data use policy.
