This chapter discusses the challenges to information security from social networking websites and the new business models they represent. The success of this new generation of data-intensive virtual space enterprises raises heightened concerns about information security. It is already known that identity thieves are making extensive use of personal information disclosed in such virtual spaces to commit fraud, while unaccredited writers of subapplications for these spaces can also gain access and evade security around vast amounts of valuable data. It is argued that although the law may provide some data control protections, aspects of the code itself provide equally important means of achieving a delicate balance between users' expectations of data security and privacy and their desire to share information.

Keywords:   information security, data security, social networking websites, identity thieves, privacy, data control, information sharing, personal information
