Hi,

Great to see someone working on women rights and ICTs development and online privacy issues from Pakistan. I have worked on similar project for young people in the past. Most of the women I met are those who blindly upload their everyday activities, locations and events photographs on social networking sites without understanding the pros and cons of it. I have a friend who is among those people who uploads pictures of every day activities, with date, location and sometimes face by face tagging of even children. And this i such a dangerous practice. Not only is it a risky behavior but also invades the privacy of friends and family members who do not wish to be tagged and give that much information to third parties. So much needs to be done to raise awareness especially among women about how their pictures might be used/misused by these websites where they spend hours of a day!

wish you luck with your work! Best wishes.
