Giving Away the Data of Others: an Exploration of an Ownership Ambiguity Framework

When registering to use apps or websites, consumers regularly pass on the personal data of others online (Litt & Hargittai, 2014; Sarigol, Garcia, & Schweitzer, 2014). So why do people pass on vast amounts of information about others to unknown recipients, disrespecting deeply ingrained norms of respect for others privacy, information and possessions (Goodwin, 1991; Kelvin, 1973; Rudmin, 1991)? The paper begins by establishing the ownership framework and explores the elements of ambiguity at 3 steps by drawing on qualitative data from a range of sources.
