Assisting Users on the Privacy Decision-Making Process in an OSN for Educational Purposes
- 60 Downloads
In online social networks (OSNs), users create and share content to socialize with others. There are some privacy risks that emerge due to the access and/or misuse of this content. We propose a modular approach with an agent-based implementation for assessing the privacy risk of a posting action using soft-paternalism mechanisms. This proposal has been included in a gamified social network called Pesedia, developed with educational purposes.
