Privacy is one of the friction points that emerge when communications are mediated in online social networks (OSNs). Different communities of computer science researchers have framed the OSN privacy problem as one of surveillance, institutional privacy, or social privacy. In tackling these problems, researchers have also treated them as if they were independent. In this article, the authors argue that the different privacy problems are entangled and that OSN privacy research would benefit from a more holistic approach.
