The seamless integration of smartphones in the everyday practices and routines of people is a typical example of the ‘disappearance of media’ (Deuze 2012). Although the actual device is currently still very tangible and visible, it can be defined as the first step in the direction of a world that exists out of Internet-connected objects and people. With the increasing adoption of smartphones, location-based social networks (LBSNs) and platforms gain widespread popularity. However, these context… 
A privacy-aware model to process data from location-based social media
A conceptual model to help people who create thematic maps to preserve privacy of social media users by eliminating precise data by deriving multiple abstraction layers from it.
Location-aware systems or location-based services: a survey with applications to CoViD-19 contact tracking
This survey walks through the key steps of developing a privacy preserving context-aware application: from types of applications and business models, through architectures and privacy strategies, to representations.
Check in or Not? A Stochastic Game for Privacy Preserving in Point-of-Interest Recommendation System
Simulation results show that the proposed learning algorithms can help the user to make good decisions, in the sense that the user can get a high long-term return.
Expanding the magic circle – gamification as a marketplace icon
ABSTRACT This article explores the gamification trend sweeping the globe promising increased engagement and motivation, in practically any industry, context and culture, based on a stratagem of “game


Location-sharing applications and information privacy: examining users' willingness to share location information
This study builds upon the privacy calculus theory to investigate the perceived risks and benefits resulting from the location information disclosure when using location-based services, and reveals that privacy policy and privacy control both help in reducing privacy concerns, and subsequently the willingness to share location information.
Empirical models of privacy in location sharing
Locaccino, a mobile location sharing system, was deployed in a four week long field study, where the behavior of study participants who shared their location with their acquaintances was examined, showing that users appear more comfortable sharing their presence at locations visited by a large and diverse set of people.
Location-Based Services for Mobile Telephony: a Study of Users' Privacy Concerns
It is concluded that development emphasis should be given to position-aware services but that location- tracking services have a potential for success if users are given a simple option for turning the location-tracking off.
The Role of Push-Pull Technology in Privacy Calculus: The Case of Location-Based Services
This study extends the privacy calculus model to explore the role of information delivery mechanisms (pull and push) in the efficacy of three privacy intervention approaches (compensation, industry self-regulation, and government regulation) in influencing individual privacy decision making and suggests that providing financial compensation for push-based LBS is more important than it is for pull- based LBS.
The Effects of Self-Construal and Perceived Control on Privacy Concerns
This paper proposes a framework linking three mechanisms (privacy-enhancing technology, industry self-regulation, and government legislation) to privacy concerns through the mediating effects of perceived control the moderating role of selfconstrual and finds that people who value independent-self prefer personal control through technology-based mechanisms.
The mismeasurement of privacy: using contextual integrity to reconsider privacy in HCI
This paper explores how Ubicomp and HCI studies have approached the notion of privacy, often as a quantifiable concept, and considers restructuring inquiries into information sharing in studies of state-of-the-art technologies and analyze contextually grounded issues using a different, more specific vocabulary.
Social Privacy in Networked Publics: Teens’ Attitudes, Practices, and Strategies
This paper examines how teens understand privacy in highly public networked environments like Facebook and Twitter. We describe both teens’ practices, their privacy strategies, and the structural
When are users comfortable sharing locations with advertisers?
This real-world user study of 27 participants echoes earlier findings that users have significant privacy concerns regarding sharing their locations with advertisers and finds that they are complex.
Rethinking location sharing: exploring the implications of social-driven vs. purpose-driven location sharing
Significant differences are found in terms of users' decisions about what location information to share, their privacy concerns, and how privacy-preserving their disclosures were in social-driven location sharing.
