A Privacy Model for Social Networks

Alban Gabillon

Abstract

This paper defines a new multilevel privacy model for social networks like Facebook. This model is user-friendly i.e. it does not require the users to alter some security settings. It provides the users with a privacy policy with a high expressive power. First, authorizations are based on the type of relationships that the users have between them. Second, relationships themselves are protected.
