Despite the growing popularity of social networks, there is little research on the behavior of users in these networks and, more specifically on privacy-related behaviors. This study examines the behaviors that users of social network Facebook carry out to protect their privacy and analyzes whether these behaviors vary by gender. Also the frequency of publication on Facebook, the number of contacts in the profile and if they have read the Privacy Policy was examined. The main results of this study, involving 190 young men and women active users of Facebook, showed gender differences in the number of contacts in the profile (men have a higher number of contacts than women) and in the behavior of accepting the privacy policy without reading it (higher percentage of men compared to women). However, gender differences were not found in the frequency of posting on Facebook and in the general behavior directed to protect their privacy on Facebook.
