Spencer J Thomas

Supervised by Alia I Abdelmoty, Moderated by Dave Marshall

People willingly give their geographic location information on the Social web, for example, by enabling location features on Google or Twitter. These applications will collect a lot of personal location information and can infer detailed private information. This project will investigate the awareness of implications of location privacy on Twitter, with a view of recommending approaches to protecting user privacy on the Web.
