LOCATION: Room 208, TEL, Ernst-Reuter-Platz 7, 2nd floor

SPEAKER: Dorian Kanitz (TU Berlin)


Mobile applications that deal with location information and reveal it to services and other users via the internet have been widely adopted. In this talk we present a mobile application as a tool to investigate privacy behavior. In a pilot study we explored how users deal with sharing their location information to other users in different settings. To examine this we developed several features to verify the differences in location sharing behavior between individuals and in social groups. Further we explored the relationship between different personal and contextual factors and location sharing preferences in social contexts. 

Our study revealed that people who feel closer to other individuals more often request precise location information than they get from a measure like the estimated time of arrival, which implicitly infers information about the location of the user whose information was requested.
