Privacy Policies for Social Networks: A Formal Approach
As the use of Online Social Networks (OSNs) increases, privacy breaches keep pace with this growth. One reason is that users are unable to effectively manage the privacy settings (also known as privacy policies) that the platform offers. Often privacy policies are too coarse-grained, which forces users to unnecessarily restrict the audience of the data or to share it with more people than they intend to. Another problem is that users cannot control the audience of their information when it is uploaded by other users. For instance, when a picture contains several people, only the user uploading the picture can set the audience.
