ABSTRACT. This paper aims to analyze and discuss the public articulation of connections on social networks, the logic of social practices, the dynamic nature of identity and privacy, the creation and dissemination of media, and the architecture of information flow. Our paper starts with a review of relevant literature on today’s pervasive pressures on privacy, the social dynamics of privacy, privacy and identity as dynamic concepts, the collapsing of contexts in broadcast media, and the development of open source software for the new identity layer of the Internet. The overall results provide strong evidence for mainstream media’s inability to control what information is broadcast to us, the replicable nature of content in networked publics, the benefits of an open identity system for businesses, the privacy-eroding effects of mass surveillance, and the strength of privacy values in confrontation with commercial pressures. pp. 307–312

Keywords: identity, security, privacy, information, network, media
