Privacy Leakage in Mobile Online Social Networks
Source: AT&T Labs
Mobile Online Social Networks (mOSNs) have recently grown in popularity. With the ubiquitous use of mobile devices and a rapid shift of technology and access to OSNs, it is important to examine the impact of mobile OSNs from a privacy standpoint. The authors present a taxonomy of ways to study privacy leakage and report on the current status of known leakages. They find that all mOSNs in the study exhibit some leakage of private information to third parties.
