Abstract [en]

Disclosure is all about communication and Genres are about analyzing communicative action. “Genres of Disclosure” as repetitive patterns of disclosing has given less attention. Drawing on Palen and Dourish’s work, this paper expand its defined scope from a social approach into a more socio-technical approach. Evolutionized by the affordances of a new digital medium, new genres have emerged. We called these new subgenres, secondary genres of disclosure. We provide a taxonomy for these type of genres and some real examples to illuminate the concept. Implications of use for designing privacy and venues for further research are discussed. It is concluded that “Genres of Disclosure” can serve as a common language between users, system providers and legislators to preserve privacy within any system that has consequences for personal privacy.
