Social media and social space are a large part of our family establishment and private lives. Most people enjoy sharing their experiences in social media because they are appreciated and can show appreciation and consideration for others. All social media sharing presents cross-sections of individuals' lives, and the expectation of individual confidentiality has decreased. Privacy has changed a lot with social media. Nowadays, intimate situations are seen as less intimate; sometimes they are even seen as normal. For this research, a scale study was conducted to determine students' perception of privacy in social media using a questionnaire survey method. A descriptive questionnaire was created during the development phase where the opinions of 55 students were documented in response to open-ended questions. Factor analysis was carried out in response to the students' responses and from that, we determined the scope and validity rates. A 24-question scale form was created. Using the purposeful sampling method, 386 participants participated in the survey and data were collected from these quantitative research methods. For this study, we measured the change, transformation, and the privacy awareness of people who are living in a state of confrontation with social media applications, and we evaluated the awareness and transformation of privacy through social media as represented by social media users.
