Kim, H. (2016). Full length article: What drives you to check in on Facebook? Motivations,
privacy concerns, and mobile phone involvement for location-based information
sharing. Computers In Human Behavior, 54397-406. doi:10.1016/j.chb.2015.08.016
Summary: This article delves into the idea that with the growing attention to social media sites
comes a lack of privacy. Specifically, in regards to the use of Facebook. The author argues that
even if you arent a really heavy user of Facebook potential hackers and thieves can still discern
your location. Through todays location software on mobile apps people are always checking into
a different area. The author also brings up the idea that when you check in on Facebook and like
things on Facebook, it also gives the internet a better idea about your interests and what you like
which can lead to advertising things that specifically cater towards you. The idea that marketing
is always available through social media.

Result Comparison: I personally liked the use of Google. I believe I preferred Google because I
am a lot more accustomed to using Google as opposed to Bing. I think a lot of people do prefer
the use of Google because of the complete functionality of it.

Keywords: The Keywords that I used were cell phone, and applications. I used these words
along with my topic of privacy.
The databases I used were the Ebsco databases through the CCBC databases.
6.
When it comes to looking for the sources I felt like both the databases and the internet were both
helpful. I think I would lean more towards the Internet, because I am so used to it. But, that isnt
to say that the databases werent helpful at all. When it comes to the ease of access I would give
the edge to the Internet. Like I said earlier the Internet was easier to use because I use it every
day. When it comes to the timeliness I would give the edge to the databases because of how you
can manipulate the search to go to a specific timeline. With authority I believe that both are
pretty equal. When you type in a specific topic you expect the authors are going to be credible
and know what they are talking about.
