In this paper, I present a comparative legal analysis of privacy protections for personal information posted to social media websites; particularly in the United States and under the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights. I argue that privacy laws based on the right to a private life, such as those generally found in European jurisdictions, more accurately reflect the realities of the digital age and properly protect individual privacy online.
