A Novel Method for Providing Discrete Filtering and Blacklisting Options for OSN Users

gadde sai sudha, K. Priyanka


OSN has fabulous growth in recent years interacting millions of users. OSNs are provided with viewing friends content and sharing so much of information and messages among the users and users are allowed write something on other users walls. So here the users may lose privacy by writing something bad and unwanted content on their walls.

Introducing access control which includes flexible rule based system as well as machine learn based soft classifier  for posted messages control on user own walls. To overcome this problem, in this paper we are introducing a concept of Individual Filtering option to each and every user of the OSN to control the content being posted on their wall. Also an option which can restrict the other users from commenting on the user’s wall, known as Blacklisting.
