Abstract

Within this paper we argue that researching the social privacy practices of users on online social networks per se is not sufficient to capture the essence of social privacy. Often the technology of online social networks is taken for granted, through which alternative privacy management strategies are overlooked. We argue to focus more on alternative solutions than those made available by online social network providers. We illustrate our thoughts through elaborating our methodology in researching the social privacy problem of invisible audiences.
