Title: This post will be commenting on the article found on called “F.T.C. Backs Plan to Honor Privacy of Online Users” by Edward Wyatt and Tanzina Vega

Comments: I find this article quite interesting, mainly because I agree with mos of what was said in the article by the sources that were referenced. I agree mainly with the general feeling of more control over privacy on the internet. As it is now, there is very little we can do to prevent companies from following our actions on the web and tracking us at will. What’s really nice is the aspect of optionality in the legislation. This opens up the decisions for the consumer to make, which makes the legislation more likely to pass through the proper channels. This is a big event in the field of new media, so it’s one that we as new media students should be paying careful attention to how the legislation proceeds from here.
