Fenwick McKelvey

Facebook, Cambridge Analytica and Privacy
Posted on March 28, 2018

Fenwick McKelvey, Assistant Professor of Communication Studies, researches the intersection of communications, media and the digital world. Given the lack of policy frameworks surrounding new media outlets like Twitter and Facebook, much of his work focuses on policy analysis and intervention.

With the newest revelations about Cambridge Analytica and the alleged misuse of Facebook users' private information, Professor McKelvey provided thoughtful commentary about how it happened, and how it could impact social platforms moving forward. Professor McKelvey’s commentary was featured in newspapers from coast to coast, including the National Observer, The Toronto Star, Le Devoir, La Presse, CBC Radio One and Ici Radio-Canada.
