Title: "Theory and Methods for Contextual Privacy in Social Networks"
Abstract:: "Most of us use social networking services. Unsurprisingly, privacy is a very important issue. The overarching narrative around privacy research in social networks centers on institutional privacy and its implications. In contrast, I draw on theories of contextual integrity and networked privacy to examine another fundamental question Why do people look at their friend's activities on social networks? Specifically, I focus on three phenomena (a) social surveillance, (b) deception and (c) nonuse as factors and stratagems of privacyaware behavior in social networks. In addition to theoretical contributions, I find and attempt to address several methodological issues to do better and more holistic research in this area. I call this mixed methods data science and discuss one exemplar Grounded Topic Analysis that can appeal to positivist as well as interpretative work at the intersection of human computer interaction, network science and big data."
