Smartphones hold and collect ever-increasing amounts of personal and contextual data about their owners. This information is often shared on social networks or sent to on-line service providers, in order to benefit from social and context-aware features. This, however, raises serious privacy issues. My talk will revolve around the human and social aspect of privacy: I will discuss the privacy implications of the relationship between location, co-location (e.g., name tagging in posts and photos on mobile social networks) and social ties and the implications of the use of generalization-based privacy protection techniques on the utility of location-based services.
