Social Media Privacy Act

PASS THE SOCIAL MEDIA PRIVACY ACT

80% of people use social media, such as Facebook or Twitter. While some people make a lot of their social media activity public, most people use social media to send and receive private messages. That private communication should be protected by law.

We would never allow employers or school staff to search our homes, read our diaries or mail, listen in on private gatherings with friends, or check out our private videos or photo albums. Our private digital lives deserve the same protection.

Tell your legislators to pass the Social Media Privacy Act today.

Please support – and work to pass – the Social Media Privacy Act (H.158/S.2320).

80% of people use social media, such as Facebook or Twitter. While some people make a lot of their social media activity public, many people also use social media to send and receive private messages, and that private communication should be protected by law. 25 states have already passed legislation to prevent employers and schools from demanding that you share the contents of your social media accounts -- or turn over your passwords so they can snoop in your private communication for themselves. Let’s pass the Social Media Privacy Act in Massachusetts, too!

I hope you will urge the Speaker and the Chair of House Ways & Means to act on this basic privacy-protective legislation as soon as possible.

Sincerely,
