With Social Networks (SNs), being populated by a still increasing number of people, who take advantage of the communication and collaboration capabilities that they offer, density of the information, spread over SNs is increasing steadily. Furthermore, the probability of exposure of someone’s personal moments to a wider than expected crowd is also increasing. Hence, analyzing the spreading area and privacy level of any information through a SN is an important issue in social network analysis. By studying the functionalities and characteristics that modern SNs offer, along with the people’s habits and common behavior in them, it is easy to understand that several privacy risks may exist, for many of which people may be unaware of. We address this issue, focusing on interactions with posts in a SN, using Facebook as the research domain. As a novelty, we propose an application tool which visualizes the effect of potential privacy risks in Facebook and provides users to control their privacy. The proposed (and simulated) tool allows a Post Owner to observe the spreading area of his/her post, depending on the selected privacy settings of this post. Moreover, it provides preliminary feedback for all the Facebook users that have interacted with this post, to make them aware of the possible privacy changes, aiming to give them a chance to protect the privacy of their interaction on this post by deleting it when such a privacy change takes place.
