Blogging, tweeting and social networking become important part of our daily life. Studies have shown that people spend a lot of their time online such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, You Tube and in other blogosphere. These web-based applications are designed to assist people and businesses alike to stay in touch, communicate and collaborate more effectively, socialize across borders and in general, maintain a second avatar in cyberspace. However, security and privacy issues very important in OSNs and everybody should be aware of what they are posting and who are viewing these posting and images. OSNs are also being used to spread rumors, misinformation and hatred with devastating consequences. This talk will discuss how the social behavior is changing and its impact in society, risk and privacy issues. Determining the behavior pattern of this social interaction is a big data-analytic problem.
