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.
Privacy Issues in Social Networking Websites: Is Facebook Revealing Our Social Life?
TLDR
It can be inferred that a lot of information can still be revealed about an OSN (Online Social Network) user?s social life to third parties.
Privacy Behaviour and Profile Configuration in Twitter
The dichotomy between users' privacy behaviours and their privacy attitudes is a widely observed phenomenon in online social media. Such a disparity can be mainly attributed to the users' lack of
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.
Assessing User Privacy on Social Media: The Twitter Case Study
TLDR
This paper proposes a model for assessing the privacy of users on social media by identifying the critical aspects associated with their content and interactions generated on such platforms, and considers distinct features, of different kinds, that capture the level of users’ exposure with respect to privacy.
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.
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.
Denial of Choice: Group Level Disclosure of Private Information
TLDR
Some preliminary findings from a current study are presented, based on an online survey, that reveal a likelihood of activities associated with other-generated disclosure on OSNs.

Automatic social group organization and privacy management
TLDR
This work proposes an approach to facilitate online social network users to group their contacts into social circles with common interests and uses the social group practice to automate the privacy setting process for users who add new contacts or upload new data items.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Persona: an online social network with user-defined privacy
TLDR
This work presents Persona, an OSN where users dictate who may access their information, and describes an implementation of Persona that replicates Facebook applications and shows how Persona provides the functionality of existing online social networks with additional privacy benefits.
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.
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.

TLDR
A deception model for online users is developed that uses a game theoretic approach to characterizing a user's willingness to release, withhold or lie about information depending on the behavior of individuals within the user's circle of friends.
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.
