Digital Privacy on Social Media

Digital Privacy Summary

Digital privacy

Digital Privacy is a collective definition that encompasses three sub-related categories; information privacy, communication privacy, and individual privacy. It is often used in contexts that promote advocacy on behalf of individual and consumer privacy rights in digital spheres, and is typically used in opposition to the business practices of many e-marketers/businesses/companies to collect and use such information and data.We are told our data is exposed and that we lack complete privacy. While our data is exposed through digital mediums, such as social media, we also more sensitized to privacy issues. The evolution between 2005 and 2011 of the level of disclosure for different profile items on Facebook shows that over the years, people want to keep more information private. Social networks have done the opposite: if we share more information, we expose more and Facebook can sell more to advertisers. Every 8 or 10 months, some social networks face privacy incidents which lead users to regroup and contest, however the networks usually apologize and continue on with the same information-mining tactics. When we share information with friends, their data are exposed and privacy decreases. This is a consequence of bridging social capital: as we create new and diverse ties on social networks, data becomes linked. This decrease of privacy continues until bundling appears (when the ties become strong and the network more homogenous). Privacy then increases through stagnation, creating a community where privacy can be reattained through mass. However, Facebook and other social media outlets find other ways for us to share information, for instance through games, top 10, quizz, etc. It makes what we can call "cycles of privacy".
