Mobile applications frequently gather, use and share our personal information. To protect our privacy, any use of our personal information by these applications should ideally be controlled in a manner which is consistent with our specific privacy attitudes. This article takes the premise that such attitudes are determined by the social context in which the gathering, use and sharing of personal information takes place. Based on this observation, a novel approach to privacy controls is introduced which is driven by social context.
