Fast development of shared services has become a crucial part of the cyber-enabled world construction process, as sharing services reinvent how people exchange and obtain goods or services. However, privacy leakage or disclosure remains a key concern during the sharing service development process. While significant efforts have been undertaken to address various privacy issues in recent years, there is a surprising lack of review for privacy concerns in the cyber-enabled sharing world. To bridge the gap, in this paper, we survey and evaluate existing and emerging privacy issues relating to sharing services from various perspectives. Differing from existing similar works on surveying sharing practices in various fields, our work comprehensively covers six branches of sharing services in the cyber-enabled world and selects solutions mostly from the recent five to six years. We conclude the issues and solutions from three perspectives, namely, from users', platforms' and service providers' perspectives. Hot topics and less discussed (cold) topics are identified, which provides hints to researchers for their future studies.
