Part of the REVEAL work consisted of dealing with and researching the legal situation with regards to verification of user-generated content, the analysis of information residing in social networks, accessing respective APIs, making use of hosted content (e.g. for news reporting) and such like. It included shedding light on areas such as data protection, privacy, the “right to be forgotten” and much more. In this article of our “REVEAL Results series” we summarise work undertaken by CITIP at KUL Leuven in the legal domain, and point to respective resources.
Not only journalists need to verify and analyse content in Social Networks.

Here is an interview with Matt Durham, Senior Vice President of Market Strategy at Software AG. He reveals his personal use of social media.
