Judging the personal risk to privacy when participating in social networking

A group of students from Penn State University have developed a methodology for assessing the personal risk to privacy when participating in online social media.

It's an interesting attempt to quantify objectively the risks for individuals and could be a useful starting point for government departments to help their staff understand the impacts of their choices.

You'll find the system, termed SNAPR (Social Networking Action & Privacy Risk Methodology) online here.
