USEMP – User Empowerment for Enhanced Online Presence Management
The USEMP project ended in September 2016.
A large majority of Europeans engage with Online Social Networks (OSNs) and a recent Eurobarometer study concludes that 74% of respondents think that they do not have enough control of the data they share and 70% are concerned with the way such data are handled by OSNs. In response to these concerns, USEMP aimed at developing a framework that will empower users by enhancing their control over the data they distribute or interact with. The framework will reduce the existing asymmetry between data processing and control means available to OSNs and those afforded by citizens. USEMP contribute to the reduction of this asymmetry and will propose a multidisciplinary approach.
