With the dramatic increase of users on social network websites, the needs to assist users to manage their large number of contacts as well as providing privacy protection become more and more evident. Unfortunately, limited tools are available to address such needs and reduce users' workload on managing their social relationships. To tackle this issue, we propose an approach to facilitate online social network users to group their contacts into social circles with common interests. Further, we…

TLDR
This model uses type, frequency, and initiation factor of social interactions to calculate relationship strength and mimics real life interaction patterns and makes online social networks more privacy friendly.
Detecting Privacy Preferences from Online Social Footprints: A Literature Review
TLDR
This document reviews prior studies that tackle this challenging task and make use of users’ online social footprints to discover their desired privacy settings and develops and employs algorithms to automatically predict users' privacy preferences for personalization purposes.
My Friend Leaks My Privacy: Modeling and Analyzing Privacy in Social Networks
TLDR
It is shown that the social circle model is efficient yet practical, which provides certain level of privacy protection capabilities to users, while still facilitates socialization, and utilize this model to analyze the most popular social network platforms on the Internet, and demonstrate the potential privacy vulnerabilities in some social networks.
Relationship Strength Based Privacy for the Online Social Networks
TLDR
A model is proposed for the privacy in online social networks that restricts the disclosure of personal information to the individuals and reduces the percentage of information disclosure to the less known individuals.
Protecting attributes and contents in online social networks
TLDR
It is shown that large portions of users with online presence are very identifiable, even with a small piece of seed information, and the seed information could be inaccurate, so it is more important to protect attributes and textual content in social networks.
Challenges in protecting personnel information in social network space

TLDR
This paper elucidates various cyber issues such as cyber-bullying, Internet banging and cyber-attacks, and includes a review of the privacy issues which arise due to the lack of privacy knowledge and skills or the ignorance of the actors of social network graph.
Automatic Social Circle Detection Using Multi-View Clustering
TLDR
Results show that multi-View clustering is more accurate for social circle detection; and the proposed approach gains significantly higher similarity ratio than the original multi-view clustering approach.
Understanding Privacy Dichotomy in Twitter
TLDR
A series of experiments found a set of clues that users' privacy preferences are similar to the privacy behaviour of their social contacts, signaling that privacy homophily exists in social networks.
FriendGuard: A Friend Search Engine with Guaranteed Friend Exposure Degree
TLDR
This paper proposes a new friend search engine, namely FriendGuard, which guarantees the degree of friend exposure as set by users, and construction of a unique sub social network that is capable of satisfying query needs as well as controlling the degreeof friend exposure.

Social Circles: Tackling Privacy in Social Networks
TLDR
This paper proposes to build—and evaluate the usability of—an automated grouping technique that analyzes the user’s social graph for social circles, i.e., clusters of densely and closely connected friends.
To join or not to join: the illusion of privacy in social networks with mixed public and private user profiles
TLDR
This work shows how an adversary can exploit an online social network with a mixture of public and private user profiles to predict the private attributes of users, and proposes practical models that use friendship and group membership information to infer sensitive attributes.
Privacy suites: shared privacy for social networks
TLDR
A new paradigm is proposed which allows users to easily choose "suites" of privacy settings which have been specified by friends or trusted experts, only modifying them if they wish, which could dramatically increase the privacy protection that most users experience with minimal time investment.
A Framework for Computing the Privacy Scores of Users in Online Social Networks

TLDR
This paper proposes a framework to compute a privacy score of a user, which indicates the potential privacy risk caused by his participation in the network, and develops mathematical models to estimate both sensitivity and visibility of the information.
Feasibility of structural network clustering for group-based privacy control in social networks
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the particular clustering algorithm, SCAN, which detects hubs and outliers within a network can be beneficial for identifying contacts who are hard to group or for whom privacy preferences are inconsistent with the rest of their group.
Multiparty Authorization Framework for Data Sharing in Online Social Networks
TLDR
An access control model is formulated to capture the essence of multiparty authorization requirements and is demonstrated the applicability of the approach by implementing a proof-of-concept prototype hosted in Facebook.
Imagined Communities: Awareness, Information Sharing, and Privacy on the Facebook
TLDR
It is found that an individual's privacy concerns are only a weak predictor of his membership to the Facebook, and also privacy concerned individuals join the network and reveal great amounts of personal information.
Prying Data out of a Social Network
TLDR
This work examines the difficulty of collecting profile and graph information from the popular social networking website Facebook and describes several novel ways in which data can be extracted by third parties, and demonstrates the efficiency of these methods on crawled data.
Privacy wizards for social networking sites
TLDR
A template for the design of a social networking privacy wizard based on an active learning paradigm called uncertainty sampling, which is able to recommend high-accuracy privacy settings using less user input than existing policy-specification tools.
