Testing the Limits of Social Media Ownership
Social media, by its very nature, introduces questions about content ownership. Content ownership comes into play most crucially when we design services and applications to archive, reuse, remix, or remove social media. We have been investigating social media ownership issues using a series of Mechanical Turk surveys that probe respondents' current attitudes and practices; the surveys combine open-ended questions about use with realistic scenarios that test respondents' attitudes in specific situations.
