A field trial of privacy nudges for facebook

This study explores the design of two modifications to the Facebook web interface aimed at nudging users to consider their online disclosures more carefully. The modifications, reminders about the audience of posts and a time delay before publishing, were evaluated in a 6-week field trial with 28 Facebook users. The findings suggest that audience reminders can prevent unintended disclosures without significant burden, while a time delay can be seen as both beneficial and annoying. The study discusses the implications and challenges of designing systems to assist users with online disclosures.
