Social media has become truly global in recent years. The authors argue that support for users' privacy, however, has not been extended equally to all users from around the world. In this paper, they survey existing literature on cross-cultural privacy issues, giving particular weight to work specific to online social networking sites. They then propose a framework for evaluating the extent to which social networking sites' privacy options are offered and communicated in a manner that supports diverse users from around the world.
