Privacy and Online Social Network: A Model for Analysis…

The popularization of Information and Communication Technologies allowed new forms of interaction, including Online Social Network (OSN) services. These services could share personal data with third-party organizations through Application Programming Interfaces (API), making it a complex task to observe the data flow.

This research proposes a model to identify levels and elements available in the flow of personal data via API between organizations holding OSN services and external agents.

It converged the recurrent mechanisms into providing data sets from the OSN services to external agents from a systematized reading of the technical documentation to establish a database model to fetch unitedly the possibility of storing information about the levels in which API provided personal data to external agents, applying the Entity-Relationship Model. Subsequently, it presents a Data Mart as a proof of concept for the proposed database model, intending to compare the ways of accessing the personal data attributes stored and, following, shared by the OSN services to external agents.

It showed that the model could clarify the elements inherent in the data flow, allowing a more structured analysis, including the possibility of monitoring changes in the API by organizations over time.

Systematic Literature Review on intersections between Human-Computer Interaction and…

The use of Information and Communication Technologies contributed to the emergence (or adaptation) of fields of study dedicated to the interaction between human beings and computer systems, such as Human-Computer Interaction. This research aims to identify and categorize the studies related to Online Social Network Services present in the International Journal of Human-Computer Interaction, from the perspectives of the seven challenges of Human-Computer Interaction presented by Stephanidis and collaborators. It is research that is characterized in terms of its objectives as an exploratory and descriptive study, applying the principles of Systematic Literature Review as a technique.

67 scientific communications were analyzed. The Human-Environment Interaction theme was the most cited, followed by: Ethics, Privacy and Security; Welfare, Health and Eudaimonia; Human-Technology Symbiosis; and Social Organization and Democracy, respectively. No scientific communications were found that addressed the Accessibility and Universal Access challenge.

Considering the year in which the articles were published, 2018 is observed as the year with the highest number of publications. It was also observed that research related to the theme Online Social Networking Services is dispersed in the journal between 2010 and 2020, and that some terms such as Social Media and Social Network Sites began to be shaped as studies on the topic were deepened.

Based on the analysis carried out, it is possible to affirm that studies that combine Human-Computer Interaction, Information Science and Online Social Network Services demand to be more widely researched.
