Social Privacy in Networked Publics: Teens’ Attitudes, Practices, and Strategies by Danah Boyd, Alice E. Marwick :: SSRN

Social Privacy in Networked Publics: Teens’ Attitudes, Practices, and Strategies by Danah Boyd, Alice E. Marwick :: SSRN | Social Networks and Older People | Scoop.it

This paper examines how teens understand privacy in highly public networked environments like Facebook and Twitter. We describe both teens’ practices, their privacy strategies, and the structural conditions in which they are embedded, highlighting the ways in which privacy, as it plays out in everyday life, is related more to agency and the ability to control a social situation than particular properties of information. Finally, we discuss the implications of teens’ practices and strategies, revealing the importance of social norms as a regulatory force.

This is quite long, but has some really interesting insights into the way teens view their privacy in socially networked environments.

Nikolaus Wood's curator insight, May 24, 2013 12:41 PM

Honestly people will never be intelligent about what they put online. Expecting the least rational of our population to do anything intelligent is pure stupidity and is completely beyond me.
