Restrain On Social Networks From Conjecture Attacks

K Gowtham Kumar, P Eswaraiah


These Social networks allow their members to connect by means of various web linkes  in which the We study the problem of privacy-preservation in social networks. Now-a-days the use of social networks among the people has become more popular. With the impact of social networks on society, the people become more sensitive regarding privacy issues in the common networks. Anonymization of the social networks (MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and Orkut) is essential to preserve privacy of informations gathered by the social networks. Collection of techniques that use node attributes and the link structure to refine classifications.Uses local classifiers to establish a set of priors for each nodeUses traditional relational classifiers as the iterative step in classification.
