Abstract

The concern about the privacy of the members of the civil society has been pondering over the minds of the citizens, thinkers, intellectuals, governments and lawmakers alike during the historical past and present, and perhaps would continue to be an important social and individual concern in future in any civil society. The general privacy beliefs are results of complex interaction of social norms and moral value beliefs often mediated in space and time by a number of social variables at individual and collective levels. In real-life social interactions, the individuals have a control over the personal information shared amongst each other. The personal information thus shared in physical world has a limited and slow flow to others and generally dissipates with time with no trace after a relatively reasonable timespan. Its impact on a person’s reputation is also relatively limited to a relatively close social circle. As the attributes of the routine social interactions in physical world are missing in the virtual world of SNSs and the artificial intelligence algorithms on the prowl, learning about the every minute aspect of the user’s behavior, the actual attitudes of users would begin to change at a rapid pace. It remains to be seen if the human intelligence would be able to defy the artificial intelligence or vice versa, thereby, necessitating a changed perception about the data privacy law also. The law enforcers would do well to understand these behavioural patterns to deal with their clients in recent future.
