Paper accepted at PERVASIVE 2012! (February, 2012)

Our paper "Big Brother Knows Your Friends: on Privacy of Social Communities in Pervasive Networks" has been accepted for publication in the proceedings of PERVASIVE 2012! With the advent of sustainable wireless peer-to-peer technology in mobile phones, traditional online and mobile social networks can be extended to form localized and highly pervasive social communities, referred by us as Pervasive Social Networks. In this work, we experimentally evaluate the privacy of communities or social groups in pervasive social networks.
