privacy campaign targeting teens

Via the Norwegian YouTubeBlogg (which seems a good way to track Norway-related YouTube content) I found this video, posted by Datatilsynet as part of a campaign where they’re trying to make teens more aware of their privacy rights and of surveillance in everyday situations.

There’s a website for the campaign too: dubestemmer.no, which means “you decide”. Lots of comparisons – “you have the right to shut the door to your room” encouraging more awareness of privacy issues. I wonder whether it works? I find it striking that this is something we have to teach teens. Will they reject privacy as an odd historical concept? Privacy wasn’t a common right a few hundred years ago, or even a few decades ago, when the idea of a teenager having a room of her or his own would have been extraordinary. Or will there be a revolution against the extreme panopticon of surveillance today?
