Privacy and Social Networking Technology
AbstractThis paper reviews Facebook’s controversial privacy policies as a basis for considering how social network sites can better protect the personal information of their users. We argue that Facebook’s architecture leaves its users too exposed, especially to online surveillance. This architecture must be modified and Facebook must be more proactive in safeguarding the rights of their customers as it seeks to find the proper balance between user privacy and its commercial interests.
