👍🏻👍🏻 Senate Bill S.806 AKA the “Own Your Own Data Act” 👍🏻👍🏻
I’m in strong support this Senate Bill S.806 AKA the “Own Your Own Data Act” which would prohibit the collection of private data by social media companies and grant users the property rights to all of the data that they generate on the internet.
* Additionally, this bill would require prominent icons to allow users to obtain copies of their data or export it, along with any analysis the company performs.
* Finally, it’d require social media users to ensure a plain language licensing agreement that allows the social media company to use their data when registering a social media account. Social media companies would be required to have clickable cancellation icons allowing users to immediately cancel the license agreement.
While social media users maintain the rights to their content on social media platforms, the data generated through their use of these platforms doesn’t rightfully belong to them, as it’s not authored by them in the same way that a social media post is.
