Handbook of Research on Social Interaction Technologies and Collaboration Software: Concepts and Trends
Focusing on the latest explosion of Internet-based collaboration tools and platforms reaching end-users, this book explores their origins, structures, purposes, and functions; and it muses over how SIT can expand human abilities and powers.
Presenting a comprehensive view of the impact of social computing on the way cultures think, act, and exchange information, this book offers the latest research on social change, evolving networks, media, and interaction with technology.
Privacy is one of the friction points that emerges when communications get mediated in Online Social Networks (OSNs). Different communities of computer science researchers have framed the ‘OSN privacy problem’ as one of surveillance, institutional or social privacy. In tackling these problems they have also treated them as if they were independent. We argue that the different privacy problems are entangled and that research on privacy in OSNs would benefit from a more holistic approach.
