Is Your Experience GDPR-Ready?

I collaborated with one of Facebook’s Product Design Managers, Yael Levy, on GDPR’s sweeping implications in the United States.

GDPR stands for the General Data Protection Regulation which is a regulation intending to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union (EU).

You might ask, “Why is an American UXer so interested in GDPR?” Well, not only is this EU-specific precedent also enforceable by international law, GDPR also impacts something that has allowed me, as an experience designer and strategist, to create more meaningful, context-driven experiences. That something is data.
