Abstract

Disclosed is a system that can be integrated with temporary social media applications to identify the complexity of the content (i.e. photograph or story) and calculate the visual literacy index of the content recipients. Based on these noted results, the system automatically sets an expiry time per individual, per content item.

Dynamic White Walling Social Network Activities Based on Recipient '

Index

The everlasting behavior of activities posted on social network sites has created a serious privacy concern; content is accessible by too many for too long. As a result, social networking sites are losing participants.

Temporary social media addresses the need to remove some content in a timely manner. Quickly removing content such as photographs ensures some level of privacy for the users (i.e. sender and recipient). Current design forms an effective temporary social media theory and facilitates easy sharing. However, existing temporary social media implementations do not provide an automated or manual method for the system to calculate or determine:

• The visual literacy index • Place • Timing • State of the individual with which photographs are shared
• Complexity of understanding the shared photograph(s)

In addition, current systems cannot set a dynamic expiry time per individual based on the above factors, but can only set a default minimum/maximum expiry time for all individuals.

An enhanced design of temporary social media functions is needed in order to ensure effective implementation and communication , still protect a user's privacy, and extend acceptance by a wider community. In addition, the system must account for users' visual literacy.

The novel contribution is a design for a system that can be integrated with temporary social media applications to identify the complexity of the content (i.e. photograph or story) and calculate the visual literacy index of the content recipients . Based on these noted results, the system automatically sets an expiry time per individual, per content item. The expiry time is set differently per photograph per individual depending on the respective focus for extracting information/intention/motto from the images. In addition, the system enables dynamic change of the expiry time depending on the individual 's current state of understanding/interpreting information from photographs. For example,

while sharing the photograph, the proposed engine can have a set expiry time of X-seconds based on the current state of the recipient individual , and then dynamically change the expiry time to Y-seconds based on the recipient's modified state of mind

while opening the application for viewing or while viewing it.

The system determines content type and complexity level (e.g., of a photograph) using metadata generated by the camera during photo capture or based on content based image retrieval (CBIR). Considering the complexity of the content in relation to the recipient's visual literacy index, the system dynamically sets the expiry time. Thus, the viewing time directly correlates with the content complexity and the recipient's ability to
