Hello, I’m Anthony Maroulis. I am a senior pursuing a Communications degree under the general studies track at the University of Maryland. I am originally from Rockville, Maryland, and have hopes to travel the world after I graduate. My goal is to study the methodology behind intrapersonal communication in attempts to help people better understand how their internal speech affects them. My interests in relation to this blog is to point out the underlying flaws with data collection, ranging from Snapchat user-content being stored on remote servers, to being monitored by governmental agencies based upon your prior search history. We hope to inform our readers the necessary precautionary measures to protect their privacy. These are matters that need to be put labeled as social issues by scrutinizing them publicly until an outcry for reform is mandatory. Thank you for coming and supporting the blog and our cause!
