Interesting reports on teens with their privacies on social medias.

It would have been more insightful if the study had included parallel survey results (with similar questions asked) using the older parental age grouping. The article and pdf report mentions that an equal number of parents were contacted and asked questions about themselves and their kids, though I could find no indications that they were surveyed for their own answers to the same privacy questions asked of the teens.

The real question, in my estimation, is how the behavior or responses of teens might differ from that of the older age group. Only then can one begin to surmise whether privacy opinions among teens represent a departure from those of other age groups, and hence perhaps indicate a trend that is a cause for concern. As the survey stands, it's just a collection of data points, all free-floating in space by themselves.

Interesting reports on teens with their privacies on social medias! Isn't this precisely one of the reasons there is such a lack of privacy on social medias?
