The Second International Workshop on Privacy and Security in Online Social Media (PSOSM) will be Co-located with 22nd International World Wide Web Conference in
Rio, Brazil during 13-17th May, 2013.  The full day PSOSM workshop will take place on 14th May 2013.

The main goals of the PSOSM workshop are:

(1) To create a platform to discuss latest and upcoming issues, trends, and cutting-edge research approaches in security and privacy in online social media / complex networked systems;

(2) To bring researchers who are working separately on security and privacy, and online social media, to discuss the problems that overlap and bring these two areas together.

Topics / themes include, but not limited to the following:
- Information privacy disclosure, revelation and its effects in OSM and online social networks
- Collateral damage due to information leakage (e.g. through photo tagging) on OSM

- Studying the social and economic impact of security and privacy issues on OSM
- User behavior towards change in privacy features in OSM
- Usability (including design flaws) of secure systems on online social media
- Data modeling of human behavior in context of security and privacy threats
- Privacy and security in social gaming applications
- Trust systems based on social networks
- Legal and ethical issues for researchers studying security and privacy on OSM
- Information credibility on OSM
- Security and Privacy issues in new entrants in OSM (e.g. Google Plus)
- Effect of OSM on conventional crime (robberies and theft)
