Our study on the utilization of social networks for recommending news articles, which we performed in cooperation with the eMarketing group at TU Darmstadt of Prof. Oliver Hinz has an impressive media response:
The FAZ, Germany's leading daily- and business newspaper, has an article on our group and it's involvement in privacy preserving online social networking.
Online Social Networks are currently probably the online service that is most accepted by users and that generates the largest amount of data, and of network traffic, today. However, knowing about a wide range of security problems of the existing Social Networking Services, with the service provider being a big brother that keeps track of all published data and uses it for commercial purposes, we aim at creating a privacy preserving and secure social networking service, based on P2P. Safebook is a cooperation of the P2P Networks Group, TU Darmstadt, and EURECOM.
The research of the P2P Group has further been covered by a selection of news paper articles, radio features, and interviews:
