Privacy in a networked world: effects of reciprocity and imitation on location sharing

Venkatanathan, Jayant; Kostakos, Vassilis

This position paper argues that location sharing has dramatically changed in recent years, becoming yet one more shareable aspect of people’s online profiles. As a result, multiple effects from the social network may now be influencing people’s decisions on if and how to share their location. Here we identify two important issues, reciprocity and imitation, which we argue are crucial in shaping people’s location sharing behaviour. Finally, the paper outlines an ongoing study aiming to systematically vary these and tease apart their effects on location-sharing behaviour.
