Media Coverage of Online Social Network Privacy Issues in Germany: A Thematic Analysis

The massive growth of online social networking platforms in recent years has brought with it increasing privacy concerns. Rarely do long periods of time pass without some major privacy issue being brought to light. In this paper we present our study regarding media coverage of privacy issues in social networks, and the effects thereof. We gathered all news articles from over 30 German media sources, published between September 1st, 2007 and August 31st, 2008. Using ‘thematic analysis’, we categorized and coded those articles, and identified the major themes among them. The results showed the main themes of interest in the media, and, more importantly, the very significant effect media coverage has on providers, and on the redesign of privacy-compromising features. The results emphasized the need for more regulation of privacy preserving practices. This study also set the stage for further inquiries into the topic in U.S. media.

Eight Problems With “Big Data”

Eight Problems With “Big Data” | privacy issues and considerations of social media | Scoop.it

"Let’s be clear on what we’re talking about. The term refers to something more specific than the general fact that companies and government agencies are collecting lots of personal information about people. What it refers to is the fact that once you store up huge amounts of information, you can mine those databases to discover subtle patterns, correlations, or relationships that our brains can’t perceive on their own because the scales involved are beyond our ability process (either the time scales at work, or the sheer number of data points)." --Jay Stanley

Abriana Christina's curator insight, February 5, 10:56 PM

This article discusses how the government is now limiting the amount law enforcement agencies tap into our privacy through our cell phones, computers, social media websites, apps, ect. It states that law enforcement demanded 1.3 million peoples subscriber information. The issue with this now occurring is the idea that we should have already been given our privacy these last 5 years and should they still be allowed to tap into our lives? This is something that relates and appears in our generation very often considering the amounts of technology that surround us.
