Wyrwane z kontekstu – Audience and Disclosure Regulation in Online Social Network Sites

We found that students who were worried about privacy were less likely to start using social network sites. Once the students did make the jump, they managed their concerns about unwanted audiences by adjusting their usage of nicknames on Myspace and through adjusting the visibility of their profiles on Facebook and Myspace but not by regulating their levels of disclosure, except for the case of phone numbers.

We also found that the perceived likelihood that future employers, government, corporations, or romantic partners would see their profile did not have an impact on the visibility of their profiles. The students also did not find any of those scenarios very likely, except for future romantic partners. (A possible romantic partner looking at the profile, rather than being a cause for concern,may actually be an aim for many of the students.)
