Participation in social networking sites has dramatically increased in recent years. Social networking sites like Facebook or MySpace allow users to keep in touch with their friends, communicate and share content, ideas, activities and recommendations, with them, as well as engage in other multiuser applications. Services allow millions of individuals to create online profile and share personal information with vast networks of friends and often, unknown numbers of strangers. There are potential attacks on various aspects of user privacy. It is not well understood how privacy concern and trust influence social interactions within social networking sites.
