With A Little Help From My Friends: 
Can Social Navigation Inform Interpersonal Privacy Preferences?

Wednesday, October 26th at Noon
Haldeman Center, Room 125 

Abstract

Recent privacy controversies surrounding social networking systems like Facebook and Google Buzz demonstrate that the mere *availability* of privacy settings is not enough for effective privacy management. We investigated whether the aggregated privacy choices of one's social circle might guide users in making informed privacy decisions. We conducted an experiment in which users specified preferences for six privacy-relevant settings in Instant Messaging. In one condition, users were provided with information indicating the privacy preferences of the majority of their "buddies." Based on the experiment data and accompanying user comments, we suggest several usability improvements in interfaces for specifying privacy preferences.
