Summary
Remarkable growth has been observed in Social Networking Websites over the past fewyears. Participation in these websites also increases drastically. Social Networking sites became apopular means of communication in the Internet.Thousands of people are registering accounts in Social Networking Websites like FaceBook, MySpace and Orkut daily. It is very easy to create a webpage or personal “profile” inthese sites which contains personal information. One user’s profile is visible to others and theycan see personal information like messages, hobbies or interests, interested communities.Knowingly or unknowingly users are disclosing their private data to others which is consideredas
loss of personal privacy
”. Of course they are “settings” available in their profile either toincrease visibility of data to others or to decrease visibility of private information. But most of the people do not change their profile settings after creating their account to enhance privacylevel, may be due lack of knowledge about privacy. On the other hand, it is the responsibility of the Social Networking Website to preserve privacy of their users. In the process of preserving,they have to put certain attributes (messages, hobbies) of users under default settings.In this research, we find out which attributes have greater role in losing of privacyaccording to a user. We have to put these attributes under default settings to increase privacylevel in the Social Networking Website.
