Online communication using social networks represents a major risk for users in terms of information privacy. While the trend for social network use becomes more popular, it has already created new social risks in the form of information overuse such as sharenting. The term “sharenting” denotes the correlation between sharing and parenting and represents the overuse of parents’ efforts in distributing digital content about their children. To date, sharenting was not actively explored within the information research context and its risks to the user privacy, as well as demonstration of sharenting in various cultures. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to provide a proposal for the cross-cultural study of sharenting from a privacy perspective using the context of the social network Snapchat.
