Improving Privacy Settings for Facebook by Using Interpersonal Distance as Criterion.
CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems. Paris, France (27 Apr - 02 May 2013)
Conference or Workshop Item, Secondary publication

Abstract

The possibility to define custom privacy settings in Facebook has been improved over the last years. Still,numerous users do not know how to change those settings or do not use the settings because they are cumbersome to use. Within this paper a new method for defining the privacy settings in online social networks is presented that uses the social distance between users as setting criterion. This approach was tested as a paper prototype in a first user study with 10 participants. Results show that the number of errors was significantly decreased and that the subjective evaluation of the interface was promising.
