Aware: Privacy Management Dashboard for Facebook Data

Aware is a web application that helps Facebook users retrieve their personal data, understand their Facebook activity, and adjust their privacy settings. Our team was inspired to create Aware because we noticed that young adults do not understand their Facebook data and how to protect it, despite their deep concern for information privacy. Aware solves this problem by helping Facebook users make sense of various personal data, including ads, groups, politics, and interests information, and helping them manage their privacy settings. Our hope is that through Aware, users experience a greater sense of safety and control over their Facebook experience.
