Privacy is an enormous problem in online social networking sites. While sites such as Facebook allow users fine-grained control over who can see their profiles, it is difficult for average users to specify this kind of detailed policy. In this paper, we propose a template for the design of a social networking privacy wizard. The intuition for the design comes from the observation that real users conceive their privacy preferences (which friends should be able to see which information) based on… 
A privacy recommendation wizard for users of social networking sites
TLDR
A machine learning privacy wizard, or recommendation tool, that is based on the underlying observation that real users conceive their privacy preferences based on an implicit structure and can be used to recommend detailed privacy settings for the user.
Gatekeeper: Rebuilding Privacy for Online Social Networks
TLDR
A probabilistic model for predicting whom a user would want to share a real-time status update with, utilising topic models that are competitive with LDA and can be generalised to any data with an assumption that authors or publishers know one another.
A framework to customize privacy settings of online social network users
TLDR
A framework that ensures privacy of individuals by allowing them to measure their privacy with respect to some specific people of their choice rather than measuring it with the entire population on online social networks is proposed.
Leveraging Personalization to Facilitate Privacy
TLDR
This work builds and evaluates MyPrivacy, a publicly available web application that suggests personalized privacy settings, and shows that users find the suggestions to be appropriate and private; they express intent to implement the recommendations made by MyPrivacy.
Content-Based Privacy Management on the Social Web
TLDR
An intelligent privacy manager is proposed that automates the assignment of sharing permissions, taking into account the content of the published information and user's high-level sharing policies.
Detecting social cliques for automated privacy control in online social networks
TLDR
A privacy control approach that addresses this problem by automatically detecting social cliques among the friends of a user by presenting an algorithm that, given a small number of friends, uses the structure of the social graph to generate an approximate clique that contains this seed.
PriMa: a comprehensive approach to privacy protection in social network sites
TLDR
PriMa (Privacy Manager), a privacy protection mechanism that supports semiautomated generation of access rules for users’ profile information, filling the gap between the privacy management needs of SN users and the existing SNs’ privacy protection mechanisms is proposed.
Inferring Unknown Privacy Control Policies in a Social Networking System
TLDR
This paper proposes an approach to infer the enforced privacy control policy by an SNS and consequently the unknown policies to the user given the explicit privacy settings and other policies communicated to the users by the SNS.
Understandable Learning of Privacy Preferences Through Default Personas and Suggestions
TLDR
Research aimed at reducing user burden through the development of two types of user-oriented machine learning techniques is reported, suggesting that both types of techniques can significantly help users converge towards their desired privacy settings.
Privacy Issues on Social Networks
TLDR
The reasons of privacy concerns, and which intensively works have done or required to produce solutions by researchers and governments will be evaluated.

Collective privacy management in social networks
TLDR
This paper proposes a solution that offers automated ways to share images based on an extended notion of content ownership that promotes truthfulness, and that rewards users who promote co-ownership, and shows that supporting these type of solutions is not feasible, but can be implemented through a minimal increase in overhead to end-users.
Capturing social networking privacy preferences: can default policies help alleviate tradeoffs between expressiveness and user burden?
TLDR
It is suggested that providing users with a small number of canonical default policies to choose from can help reduce user burden when it comes to customizing the rich privacy settings they seem to require.
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.
A Framework for Computing the Privacy Scores of Users in Online Social Networks

    2009 Ninth IEEE International Conference on Data Mining
  • 2009
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.
Inferring privacy policies for social networking services
TLDR
A machine learning approach is used to extract automatically privacy settings based on the policy that information produced within a social context should remain in that social context, both to ensure privacy as well as maximising utility.
Measuring privacy risk in online social networks
TLDR
PrivAware, a tool to detect and report unintended information loss in online social networks, is presented to provide a rudimentary framework to identify privacy risk and provide solutions to reduce information loss.
Private Relationships in Social Networks
TLDR
This paper proposes an access control model where authorized users are denoted based on the relationships they participate in, and proposes a strategy exploiting cryptographic techniques to enfotce a selective dissemination of information concerning relationships across a social network.
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.
flyByNight: mitigating the privacy risks of social networking
TLDR
This work presents a new architecture for protecting information published through the social networking website, Facebook, through encryption, that makes a trade-off between security and usability in the interests of minimally affecting users' workflow and maintaining universal accessibility.
De-anonymizing Social Networks
TLDR
A framework for analyzing privacy and anonymity in social networks is presented and a new re-identification algorithm targeting anonymized social-network graphs is developed, showing that a third of the users who can be verified to have accounts on both Twitter and Flickr can be re-identified in the anonymous Twitter graph.
