The Spinoff: University of Auckland secretly tracked students’ social media activity for months

The Spinoff: University of Auckland secretly tracked students’ social media activity for months. “Documents released under the Official Information Act show that the University of Auckland has been tracking students on social media for several months. The university appears to have used this information to gain an insight into how students were reacting to online learning, and how students would react to new information from the university. The documents also suggest a university employee may have anonymously posted on student media sites more than once to stimulate discussion and provide information.”
