The ever increasing popularity of social networks and the ever easier photo taking and sharing experience have led to unprecedented concerns on privacy infringement. Inspired by the fact that the Robot Exclusion Protocol, which regulates web crawlers' behavior according a per-site deployed robots.txt, and cooperative practices of major search service providers, have contributed to a healthy web search industry, in this paper, we propose Privacy Expressing and Respecting Protocol (PERP) that

We further design an exemplar Privacy.Tag using customized yet compatible QR-code, and implement the Protocol and study the technical feasibility of our proposal. Our evaluation results confirm that PERP and PRSP are indeed feasible and incur negligible computation overhead.
