Multi-Stakeholder Privacy and Safety on Content Creation Platforms

Online privacy and safety have been extensively discussed in terms of the user/platform binary, where users are treated as more or less a unified group that is vulnerable and to be protected. A typical phrase, along this line, would be social media user’s privacy concerns. The rise of content creation platforms such as Twitch, YouTube, and TikTok challenges this binary view through the platformization and commodification of content creation practices, leading to the situation where multiple stakeholder groups coexist and have different and sometimes competing perspectives, values, interests, and concerns. This workshop seeks to foreground the ‘multi-stakeholder’ nature in the study of privacy and safety in content creation, bringing together diverse researchers with similar interests and collectively envisioning emerging research agendas in this domain.
