“Protecting people’s privacy is the right thing to do for our community and our business. Everyday, people rely on our platform to connect with each other on Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, so it is important for people to understand what they share online. Which is why we are excited to launch the #JomJagaPrivasi campaign which will provide relatable and easy to understand ways for Malaysians to learn how to take control over their privacy settings,” said Nicole Tan, Country Director, Meta in Malaysia.
To make learning more interesting and engaging, people can play with an interactive digital experience, ‘Your Home’, that uses creative home design to help users demystify online privacy and create a Facebook experience that they’re comfortable with. People can also learn more about the privacy preference and controls on Instagram through an immersive Instagram AR Filter in collaboration with Florian Sabatier, an augmented reality (AR) creator who ventured into the extended reality (XR) space over 5 years ago and is now leading Holowisp, an agency focusing on AR marketing solutions.
At the launch, Noudhy Valdryno, Head of Public Policy, Malaysia at Meta also debunk common misconceptions around online privacy on Meta technologies and Meta’s commitment and ongoing investments in developing new ways to honor people’s privacy by providing greater transparency and controls.
The #JomJagaPrivasi campaign reaffirms Meta’s ongoing effort to enhance digital literacy and commitment to support local communities, while equipping them with resources and tools to control what they share, learn about availability of privacy tools and features, personalize what ads they see and keep their account secure on Meta platforms.
People can also expect to meet local KOLs like Ceddy Ang, Tan Yuki, Gajendrabalan Chandra, Adam Muzam, Ori Yuanwei, Amira Sachie and Jessica Chaw who will be making an appearance at the pop-up Privacy Cafe to share their personal experiences and debunking common myths around online privacy.
“We encourage people to visit the physical pop-up Privacy Cafe and to take part in both online and offline educational activities over the next two weeks of the campaign to learn how to take charge of their online privacy. We hope the campaign will also demystify common misunderstandings about online privacy, answer questions and help people know how they can be in control of their information online,” Nicole concluded.
