Abstract

This paper examines how teens understand privacy in highly public networked environments like Facebook and Twitter. We describe both teens� practices, their privacy strategies, and the structural conditions in which they are embedded, highlighting the ways in which privacy, as it plays out in everyday life, is related more to agency and the ability to control a social situation than particular properties of information. Finally, we discuss the implications of teens� practices and strategies, revealing the importance of social norms as a regulatory force.
