New legislation introduced this week by Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake) aims to restrict how long school districts can keep students' social media data. One provision of AB1442 was created in response to Glendale Unified School District officials' decision to hire the Hermosa Beach-based company Geo Listening last year to monitor students' public posts on Twitter and Facebook, among others. The service provides Glendale Unified administrators with a daily report of postings as they relate to violence, suicide, cyber-bullying, or drugs.
