With the increasing use of Social Media and Online Social Networks such as Facebook or Instagram) the question of conflicting privacy settings becomes more and more relevant.

Minkus et al. [1] conducted a study to focus on OSN behavior of parents and found that many privacy breaches may occur to children at the hands of others, namely, their parents and relatives. These authors also designed interventions to mitigate compulsive sharing on social networks. Screenshot 2020-04-05 14.00.01.png
