Social networks represent a new range of online uses that pose a series of challenges to the security community. While these networks provide new opportunities for interaction and socialization among users, the overwhelming amount of information generated, exchanged, and redistributed by users demands the adoption of new tools and techniques to search, analyze and secure online data, which are the subject of this paper. An understanding of the implications of online social networking to human social interaction and societal structure will bring new ideas and challenges to consumers, businesses, and governments worldwide. This report analyzes the social network phenomenon, focusing on its security implications and perspectives on potential future development paths.
