In this paper we use template analysis to study the content of privacy policies both of online social networks as well as 3rd party application providers. After analysing and prioritising the topics mentioned in these policies, we discuss potential problems, limitations of privacy policies, and the responsibilities they assign to various stakeholders. These findings will, in future work serve as stakeholder input for aligning social networking sites’ privacy definitions, concerns, and practices.
