IS330 City University Ethical Dilemmas Facing Facebook Filter Bubbles Discussion

Information ethics govern the ethical and moral issues arising from the development and use of information technologies,as well as the creation, collection, duplication, distribution,and processing of information itself (with or without the aid of computer technologies). Ethical dilemmas in this area usually arise not as simple, clear-cut situations but as clashes among competing goals, responsibilities, and loyalties. Inevitably, there will be more than one socially acceptable or “correct”decision. (Baltzan, p. 82)
