From blogs to Facebook profiles to Twitter messages, individuals are increasingly choosing to share information about themselves online. More personal information online brings both risks and rewards. How are companies using this digital information and how do consumers benefit from increased data sharing? Perhaps more importantly, do consumers have enough control over their personal information or is there a need for government regulators to step in?

ITIF and the Technology Policy Institute (TPI) present a wide-ranging discussion on online privacy issues and the current privacy legislation before Congress.
