New Study Shows Americans Worry Social Sites Don't Keep Their Data Private While At Same Time They Willing Give Up Personal Details Online - A Whittle Bit of Commentary 5/21/15

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Transcript (may appear different than audio recording):

I’m torn on a new study that is out from the Pew Research Center. The study found that 69% of Americans don’t believe that their private social media activity (i.e. private emails and chats) actually remain private. Social networks give people really great reasons to question if their info remains private, but the reason I’m torn is that there is a large percentage of the population that willing gives up almost every detail of their lives to the general public for free and in the open almost daily on social websites. That’s not a good thing to do and not enough Americans are concerned about that as they should be. The internet world doesn’t need to know every piece of info about the happenings in your life. Keeping details private online is something not only kids, but many adults need to learn, for their own good. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary
