Speculative data selfies

Fernando van der Vlist and I wrote an op-ed for Internet Policy Review on Data Selfie, an open-source Chrome browser extension that collects and analyses data about your behaviour on facebook.com. Our article “Speculative data selfies” discusses the plugin as a way of raising awareness through the datafied self. In the piece we briefly describe how Data Selfie works, what data it does and does not collect, what kind of data profiles or “selfies” it generates, and what type of data awareness raising strategy it employs.
