Your privacy on Facebook and Twitter may be at risk even if you have never been on social media or have deleted your account, a study suggests. Individual choice has long been considered a bedrock principle of online privacy, said scientists from the University of Vermont in the US and the University of Adelaide in Australia. However, the study shows that if a person leaves a social media platform – or never joined – the online posts and words of their friends still provide about 95 per cent of the “potential predictive accuracy,” even without any of that person’s data.

With this data, the researchers showed that information within the Twitter messages from eight or nine of a person’s contacts make it possible to predict that person’s later tweets as accurately as if they were looking directly at that person’s Twitter feed. The research raises profound questions about the fundamental nature of privacy – and how, in a highly networked society, person’s choices and identity are embedded in that network.
