In an era of information revolution and Web 2.0 technologies, the Social Network(ing) Sites (SNSs) have become a popular medium for the freedom of expression, the networking and maintaining the networks with the strangers and known others. A large amount of personal data is disclosed by the users intentionally or unknowingly on these social networking sites. The protection of this data at residence and in motion and its further processing by SNSs and their third parties is a cause of concern. In the present study, the attitude of Indian users of SNSs towards data privacy and their expectations from law in India have been explored and analyzed to validate the need for creation of a data privacy law in India. This study would provide timely guidance for policy makers who are currently engaged in framing a data protection framework on the directions of Supreme Court of India by following due process of law.
