This article considers issues of consent to disclosure of personal data arising from a decision under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA). † It analyses the extent to which the decision took into account the realities of social media usage and whether the decision gave sufficient weight to the privacy implications of the context in which the data would be disclosed. † It further considers the implications for public authorities faced with requests for disclosure of personal data, and questions whether data about minors should be treated differently.
