Security and Privacy in Social Networks is an edited collection of an introduction and 10 scholarly articles, which are partially based on the research work presented at the Workshop on Security and Privacy in Social Networks, in connection with the 2012 IEEE Social Computing Conference. Given the growing prominence of online social networks (OSN) and their corresponding security and privacy problems, this book aims to propose solutions as well as develop a common language for use between researchers and practitioners. The authors organized the book into 11 chapters, dedicating the first chapter to introduction and the remaining 10 to research articles. In the upcoming paragraphs, I will provide a review of the key ideas discussed in each chapter and then conclude my review.
