Social Networking Problem

Social Networks are great tools, they allow you to keep in touch with friends and colleagues you may have otherwise forgotten about, or lost touch with. Thanks to SNS you can now track and interact with friends, family and colleagues regardless of physical location or time constraints.

The result of these interactions however, is the inherent problem. Social Networks generate an immense amount of data, alot of which gets lost, or buried in sever log files or databases forever. Some propose that mapping Social Networks and their corresponding interactions and generated data, is an extremely important and useful thing to do for the future of our society. This mapping could allow data to be reused for timeline recrations and complex decision-making or inference rather than stored in a "data silo" by a single company or provider.

(Lack of) Privacy

In addition, there are inherent and quite justified privacy concerns related to Social Networks and activities saved/accumulated as a result of their usage, particularly where a user's interaction with a service and/or friends, family and acquaintances via a service generate data that is publicly available by default, or, whose sharing is opt-out. Even in cases where an SNS site's terms are clear and where usage data is strictly regulated or kept private, there is the possibility that a person's complete profile data or a portion thereof could be shared with Advertisers or other 3rd party business partners of the Social Network. These and similar privacy concerns have raised many questions about the immensely popular Facebook SNS site for example.
