How to survive your first networking event. Let’s flashback to March of 2010: I was a naive junior in college attending my very first professional networking event: The second annual Public Relations and Social Media Summit at Marquette University in Milwaukee.

How to survive your first networking event

The summit is a place where public relations and social media fans, students and professionals get together and discuss the latest and greatest in their respective fields. The day is filled with speakers from some of the most recognizable brands in American including IBM, Pepsi, American Eagle Outfitters, The North Face and more. Intimidated doesn’t even begin to describe how it felt sitting in a room full of well-respected and well-established experts and business executives.

Facebook could face fines for retaining deleted user data. Facebook’s international headquarters in Dublin, Ireland is facing an audit this month for keeping users’ deleted data.

Facebook could face fines for retaining deleted user data

The company could face a $138,000 (€100,000) fine if it does not comply with Irish data protection laws. The audit was triggered by an Austrian law student named Max Schrems, who requested a copy of all of his personal data from Facebook while writing a paper on privacy laws. What he received was a CD containing 1,200 pages of information on everything from his ignored friend requests to deleted messages. Facebook’s international headquarters in Dublin supports all Facebook users in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Because of its location, the Irish Data Protection Commissioner has jurisdiction over the non-U.S. and Canada segment of the company. According to the complaints, Facebook is illegally holding on to information on members and non-members, including phone numbers and email addresses.
