Social network is a way of representing the personality. Postings which is written by an owner, and comments which are produced by friends are the significant elements in social network. Unintended postings are not made but unsolicited comments can be produced and influence the online persona of the owner. Therefore a method of preventing such comments is needed. In this paper, we propose a reputation based access control for persona management. This method is to allow the right of making comments to only the deserved friends. This qualification is determined by comparing the reputation of each friend and the characteristic of each posting. The reputation of each social network user is made from the behaviors and their social evaluation. With this method, unnecessary fray and controversy are avoided without provoking social alienation.
