In the age of the Internet, privacy is a luxury and the users' have to constantly be on their heels to maintain it. OSN makes it particularly hard for users to guard their personal data.

It is difficult to balance the right of privacy and control of personal information when individuals voluntarily place personal information on their profile. Once information is placed on public domains users can easily lose control over who sees it and that may use it.
