Teens, Social Media, and Privacy | Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project

Teens, Social Media, and Privacy | Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project | Teens and Social Media | Scoop.it

Teens are sharing more information about themselves on social media sites than they have in the past, but they are also taking a variety of technical and non-technical steps to manage the privacy of that information. Despite taking these privacy-protective actions, teen social media users do not express a high level of concern about third-parties (such as businesses or advertisers) accessing their data; just 9% say they are “very” concerned.

As always, interesting research findings.

I think that it is interesting that teens want people to know exactly who they are even though they all know the consquences and that people can do harm to them.

This article posted from The Pew Research Center shows with different graphs and percentages how much more information teenagers today are posting on Facebook.  The article compares what teens posted on Facebook in 2006 vs 2012 on their profiles.  Categories compared between the two years were photos of themselves, school name, and the city where they live are a few examples.  Every category in 2012 had higher percentages than 2006.  What stuck out to me on the chart was that in 2006 two percent of people posted their phone number compared to twenty percent in 2012.  That is a big difference.  This shows that teens today are seen as careless about what information they post on Facebook and other social media.  Having your number on these sites is dangerous.  60 percent of teens on Facebook have their profile private.  Also the article shows that 24 percent of online teens use Twitter which has risen sixteen percent since 2011.  Hopefully more teens make their profiles private.  The article goes more into depth about this issue.
