This is a list of design patterns are or might be employed to control problems on social media sites.

  • Broadcast narrowing: Restricting the user's ability to broadcast publicly to the entire world, either by default or in response to some event.
  • Decentralization: Use of peer-to-peer or multiserver systems to avoid single points of failure.
  • Forgetfulness: Implementation of retention policies for social media data, either on an opt-in or a network-mandated basis.
  • Untrackability: Engineering systems so that they are not amenable to web tracking techniques.
