Dear All,

I would like to inform you that the articles of the special issue "Identity
and the social web" of IDIS Journal are now available online (Open Access).

About the journal
IDIS (Identity in the Information Society)

Identity in the Information Society (IDIS) is an international,
multidisciplinary journal created in 2008 that promotes the study of
identity in the information society. IDIS specifically encourages articles
from different disciplinary sources, reflecting the broad nature of the
topic with its interwoven concerns of law, technology, and information
systems alongside other social, political and management issues.

Special Issue: Social Web and Identity


0) Editorial: Social web and identity: a likely encounter
Thierry Nabeth, INSEAD

1) Mick or Keith: Blended Identity of Online Rock Fans
Andrea Baker, Ohio University.
This paper discusses the "blended identity" of online rock fans to show that
the standard dichotomy between anonymous and real life personas is an
inadequate description of self-presentation in online communities.

2) Constructing academic alter-egos: Identity issues in a blog-based
Vanessa Paz Dennen, Florida State University
This paper discusses how bloggers of Blogademe (consists of an informal
network of blogs written by people who identify themselves as academics) who
have affiliated with each other to form a loosely knit community develop
largely pseudonymous identities along with norms surrounding the development
and performance of identity.

3) Social networks and web 2.0: are users also bound by data protection
Brendan Van Alsenoy, Joris Ballet, Aleksandra Kuczerawy, Ku-Leuven & ICT -
The purpose of this article is to investigate the liability of users of
social network sites under data protection (e.g. Directive 95/46/EC) and to
assess the extent to which the current framework can sufficiently
accommodate the new realities of web 2.0 and social networking applications

4) Privacy Concerns and Identity in Online Social Networks
Hanna Krasnova, Oliver Günther, Sarah Spiekermann, Humboldt-Universität zu
Driven by privacy-related fears, some users of Online Social Networks have
started to reduce their network activities. Very little is understood about
the privacy-related concerns of users and the impact of those concerns on
identity performance. To close this gap, we take a systematic view of user
privacy concerns on such platforms.

5) A Comparison of Privacy Issues in Collaborative Workspaces and Social
Martin Pekárek, Stephanie Pötzsch, Tilburg University
Two of types of Web 2.0 applications - collaborative workspaces and social
network sites - have a number of features in common, which are explored to
provide a basis for comparative analysis. This basis is extended with a
suitable definition of privacy, a sociological perspective and an applicable
adversary model in order to facilitate an investigation of similarities and
differences with regard to privacy threats.

Best regards,


I have recorded the IDIS journal in the AOIR Wiki http://wiki.aoir.org/ in
http://wiki.aoir.org/index.php?title=Journals .
Maybe it could be a good idea to create an article for each of the journal
(including examples of references) instead of just having the links to the
home pages.
