ABSTRACT
The assumption that participating in social media means abandoning privacy and security is an example of a somewhat false dichotomy—"no security and privacy" on the one hand and "no information sharing" on the other. In reality, social media presents an opportunity to share information in many ways, including being selective about with whom that information is shared. This department is part of a special issue on social computing.
