Risk assessment in Mobile Social Media: trends, threats, vulnerabilities and countermeasures
Introduction to the special issue:
In recent years the world is experiencing the exponential growth of mobile social media and networks and their related platforms. The proliferation of innovative mobile network applications and services leads to the emergence of new forms of threats both for users, organizations (enterprises, communities, developers, etc.) and the society.
