          GENERAL STUDY                                  General information about FACEBOOK   3




               Facebook (www.facebook.com) is one of the
               foremost social networking websites, with over 8
               Million users. All over the world most of people
               right now use facebook as their communication
               way with their family, friends and other relatives
               through picture, videos and their daily update
               news. It has good in the overall internet. It has
               page rank 10 out of 10 and has 2nd position in the
               Alexa ranking.

                          The Privacy of Facebook
    •       Although Facebook has flaws, there are also areas in which it is own site virtually firewalled off from
            the rest of the network is a much more private-by-default system than Friendster or MySpace, which
            explicitly notes that there is no way to restrict profile information. This system makes data harvesting
            much harder, though not impossible. The requirement of having a school email account to sign up is
            largely effective in preventing fake accounts and what could otherwise be a problem of Facebook
            "identity theft."

    •       The “My Privacy” settings model is fundamentally sound. The current model would be close to ideal
            if the defaults and behaviors of settings were changed, which would not require a substantial
            engineering effort.

    •       Although the flaws with “My Photos” are pronounced, the existing security model is robust enough
    •       to solve most of the problems associated with it. If the name search for photos followed “My
            Privacy” rules, it would allow users to control their data very easily

                             Methodology of the study

            In order to investigate the ways in which Facebook is used, we
            closely investigated the usage patterns of Facebook. We employ
            one method of data collection to learn more about the way users
            interact with Facebook. We conducted a survey on students on the
            use of Facebook's features.

           Usage patterns of interest
           User surveys
           Direct data collection

                              REASON OF PRIVACY PROBLEM


           Privacy problem occurs for some initial reason made by us. As we
           see most of users are below 22 age so their tendency remain to
           create couple. For this reason they share their valuable information
           Like -

            Personal information
            Share phone no.
            E – Mail address
            Home address
            Personal interest
            Commercial valuable information

                          Other reasons

            Users are not guarded about who sees their
            information

     Users Are Not Fully Informed About Privacy

     Don’t know about FACEBOOK privacy policy

                    Recommendations                                         11




    • Don't put much personal data in your info page.
    • Set the option that prevents non-friends from seeing your cell phone
      number.
    • Careful what is placed up on your profile page.
    • Since you willingly submit information to Facebook - such as your name,
      age, gender, etc.You should be fully aware that practically anyone from
      your school can view your personal information if you do not change
      your privacy settings; that Facebook can share your information with
      third-party companies is somewhat alarming, but there is an option to
      request that your information is not shared with third-parties.

                      Conclusion
           Ultimately, lasting change in online privacy will only
           come from a gradual development of common sense
           regarding what is appropriate to post in social networking
           forums. Unfortunately, this is not an easy fix. Until users
           view alluding to underage drinking or drug use on their
           profiles as risky, mistakes regarding privacy will continue
           to occur. Revealing this sort of information needs to be
           viewed as the equivalent of going alone to the apartment
           of a person one met on the Internet.
