Birds of Feather: Social Network Sites and Third Parties Edit

Thursday evening

Third parties are integrating more closely with Social Networking Sites (SNS). They provide SNS with identity relevant information that is not user-generated, and collect information from SNS via advertisement contracts or third party applications. Even without the users' consent.

What are the consequences of the tight coupling between SNS and third parties for users' privacy? We'll present and discuss perspectives from privacy experts and SNS insiders about how third parties impact user privacy, and what the future holds for SNS and third parties.

Consequences of integration for users Edit
