Silfverberg, Suvi, Liikkanen, Lassi A. and Lampinen, Airi (2011): "I'll press play, but I won't listen": profile work in a music-focused social network service. In: Proceedings of ACM CSCW11 Conference on Computer-Supported Cooperative Work 2011. pp. 207-216.

We offer the concept of profile work to illustrate the effort people invest in their public profiles in social network services (SNSs). In our explorative study, we investigated profile work in, an SNS that automatically publishes music listening information. We found that, instead of simply not publishing things they might rather keep private, users tend to change their music listening behavior in order to control their self-presentation. Four dimensions of profile work were identified, including detailed mechanisms to regulate one's profile. We suggest ways to support users' profile work in the context of automated sharing of behavior information.

Lampinen, Airi, Lehtinen, Vilma, Lehmuskallio, Asko and Tamminen, Sakari (2011): We're in it together: interpersonal management of disclosure in social network services. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2011 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2011. pp. 3217-3226.

The workload needed for managing privacy and publicness in current social network services (SNSs) is placed on individuals, yet people have few means to control what others disclose about them. This paper considers SNS-users' concerns in relation to online disclosure and the ways in which they cope with these both individually and collaboratively. While previous work has focused mainly on individual coping strategies, our findings from a qualitative study with 27 participants suggest that collaborative strategies in boundary regulation are of additional importance. We present a framework of strategies for boundary regulation that informs both theoretical work and design practice related to management of disclosure in SNSs. The framework considers disclosure as an interpersonal process of boundary regulation, in which people are dependent on what others choose to disclose about them. The paper concludes by proposing design solutions supportive of collaborative and preventive strategies in boundary regulation that facilitate the management of disclosure online.

Lampinen, Airi, Stutzman, Fred and Bylund, Markus (2011): Privacy for a Networked World: bridging theory and design. In: Proceedings of ACM CHI 2011 Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems 2011. pp. 2441-2444.

As our lives are more commonly mediated by IT, an interactional perspective of privacy [7] is increasingly applicable to the study of how people find and construct privacy in socio-technical interactions. This perspective has received increasing attention within the HCI research community in recent years. While the interactional perspective has proven effective as a starting point for theoretical and empirical studies of privacy in relation to everyday use of IT, there remain important open questions regarding how to translate results based on this perspective into design practice. Addressing these questions requires a greater sensitivity to when interactional privacy is applicable, a better understanding of suitable research methods, and more effective means for communicating results to the research and practitioner communities.

King, Jennifer, Lampinen, Airi and Smolen, Alex (2011): Privacy: is there an app for that?. In: Proceedings of the 2011 Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security 2011. p. 12.

Users of social networking sites (SNSs) increasingly must learn to negotiate privacy online with multiple service providers. Facebook's third-party applications (apps) add an additional layer of complexity and confusion for users seeking to understand and manage their privacy. We conducted a novel exploratory survey (conducted on Facebook as a Platform app) to measure how Facebook app users interact with apps, what they understand about how apps access and exchange their profile information, and how these factors relate to their privacy concerns. In our analysis, we paid special attention to our most knowledgeable respondents: given their expertise, would they differ in behaviors or attitudes from less knowledgeable respondents? We found that misunderstandings and confusion abound about how apps function and how they manage profile data. Against our expectations, knowledge or behavior weren't consistent predictors of privacy concerns with third-party apps or on SNSs in general. Instead, whether or not the respondent experienced an adverse privacy event on a social networking site was a reliable predictor of privacy attitudes.

Suhonen, Emmi, Lampinen, Airi, Cheshire, Coye and Antin, Judd (2010): Everyday favors: a case study of a local online gift exchange system. In: GROUP10 International Conference on Supporting Group Work 2010. pp. 11-20.

This paper focuses on online gift exchange in a setting where online and offline interactions are tightly intertwined and most of the exchanges require face-to-face interaction to be completed. We present a local online gift exchange system, Kassi, and a seven-month case study of its use. Based on survey material and logs of system usage, we analyze users' motivations to contribute to the system and the community. While most users held favorable attitudes towards the system, many reasons for not using the service were found. We set our findings into perspective by discussing different ways of defining participation, measuring use, and qualifying different types of contributions. We argue that when users try to fit a system into their everyday lives, designers should consider supporting such efforts -- even if user behavior does not match expectations. Designers who encourage emergent and unanticipated behaviors can enhance users' sense of participation and encourage the leap from intention to realized action.

Lampinen, Airi (2010): Practices of balancing privacy and publicness in social network services. In: GROUP10 International Conference on Supporting Group Work 2010. pp. 343-344.

While social media is all about sharing content with a community, few people wish to share everything, with everyone, all the time. This means that users balance between making some things public and keeping other content private. The presented dissertation research concerns practices of managing privacy and publicness in social network services (SNS), with a focus on group co-presence, interdependence and differing levels of use activity. The work aims at gaining insight into social identities and self-presentation in the era of technologically mediated social interaction. The findings are expected to contribute to design solutions that could lighten the privacy and publicness management burden that users of social media currently bear.

Lampinen, Airi, Tamminen, Sakari and Oulasvirta, Antti (2009): All My People Right Here, Right Now: management of group co-presence on a social networking site. In: GROUP09 - International Conference on Supporting Group Work 2009. pp. 281-290.

A mundane but theoretically interesting and practically relevant situation presents itself on social networking sites: the co-presence of multiple groups important to an individual. This primarily qualitative study concentrates on the point of view of individual SNS users and their perspectives on multiple group affiliations. After charting the perceived multiplicity of groups on the social networking site Facebook, we investigated the relevance of multiple groups to the users and the effect of group co-presence on psychological identification processes. Users deal with group co-presence by managing the situation to prevent anticipated conflictive and identity-threatening situations. Their behavioral strategies consist of dividing the platform into separate spaces, using suitable channels of communication, and performing self-censorship. Mental strategies include both the creation of more inclusive in-group identities and the reciprocity of trusting other users and being responsible. In addition to giving further evidence of the existence of group co-presence on SNSs, the study sheds light on the management of the phenomenon. Management of group co-presence should be supported, since otherwise users may feel the urge to resort to defensive strategies of social identity protection such as ceasing to use SNSs altogether or, less dramatically, limit their use according to "the least common denominator". Hence, the phenomenon merits the attention of researchers, developers, and designers alike.
