Current research has shown that a person’s personality can be derived from written text on Facebook or Twitter, as well as the amount of information shared on their personal social network sites. So far, there has been no further investigation on whether a person’s privacy measures can be extracted from these informa- tion sources. We conducted an explorative online user study with 100 participants; the results indicate that privacy concerns can be derived from written text, with a prediction precision similar to personality. At the end of the discussion, we give specific guidelines on the choice of the correct data source for the derivation of the different privacy measures and the possible applications of those.
