Youth are sharing more personal information on their profiles than in the past. They choose private settings for Facebook, but share with large networks of friends.

 

 

 

 

 

Key findings include:

 

Teens are sharing more information about themselves on their social media profiles than they did when we last surveyed in 2006:

 

- 91% post a photo of themselves, up from 79% in 2006.

 

- 71% post their school name, up from 49%.

 

- 71% post the city or town where they live, up from 61%.

US data but Pew Research is reputable. Privacy is a learned habit and we cannot assume younger people see the need. Maybe they will be proven correct and privacy is not required to the same degree as I feel it is and should be? Thanks Gust Mees.

The Pew Reports are always fascinating.

Educators should be aware of this. Will there be issues or concerns down the road?

Education Needs a Digital-Age Upgrade | Digital & Media Literacy for Parents | Scoop.it
It's time to stop preparing students for a world that no longer exists.

 

65% of grade schoolers may do work that's not yet been invented. Digital literacy is crucial to the jobs of tomorrow, but schools, for the most part, aren't teaching it. Parents can take the lead by making sure their children are getting the skills they need at home.
