In the growing world of social media, privacy concerns have grown out of an explosion of usage. Millions take advantage of the convenience found in websites such as Twitter and Facebook. One concern about such sites is that there is limited understanding of the specific privacy issues associated with them. Recent changes to Googles privacy rules are one such example. Many factors however, lead to the ignorance of users and therefore commonplace exploitation of the information which they knowingly or unknowingly share. This paper looks at freshmen university students who use social networking sites in an attempt to understand what expectations they have of privacy on social networking sites. Using a two phased process, the study first analyzes how well students understand privacy associated with their social networking posting and then identifies information from our students which may be of a personal nature that is publically available on social networking websites.
