Due to the rise of social media, several new needs, problems and challenges have emerged in users' privacy and security policies. Two very serious problems that should be addressed are identity theft and unauthorized content sharing. In this work we propose a more secure scheme for privacy in social networks by the use of watermarking that manages to diminish these problems, at least inside current social media architectures, without the need for building them from scratch.

Cyber Security Concerns in Social Networking Service
TLDR
The key security and privacy concerns faced by individuals who use different social networking sites differently for different reasons are investigated and the current state-of-the-art defense mechanisms that can bring somewhat long-term solutions to tackling these threats are discussed.
Realizing the Right to Be Forgotten in an SNS Environment
TLDR
This study discusses the concept of the right to be forgotten and the security threats on SNS that invade the privacy of an owner of information and proposes a model that has User Privacy Policy (UPP), Dual Watermarking Scheme, and FaceCloak functions that provide strong information controllability.
Are Social Networks Watermarking Us or Are We (Unawarely) Watermarking Ourself?
TLDR
The results show that the proposed method is more effective than other watermarking techniques and can help to address serious questions about privacy and security on SNs, and paves the way for the definition of multi-factor online authentication mechanisms based on robust digital features.
Methods for Information Hiding in Open Social Networks
TLDR
SocialStegDisc provides the basic set of operations for files, such as creation, reading or deletion, by implementing the mechanism of a linked list, which establishes a new kind of mass-storage characterized by unlimited data space, but limited address space.
