Facebook is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them.
90% Of Adults Think They’re Sharing Too Much Online
Adults are finally wising up to the fact that sharing too much information online can be trouble in ways most of us can’t even imagine in those moments before we hit the ‘post’ button. This has been confirmed by a new survey conducted Online-education.net found that over 90% of adults agree that they share too much information online.
Facebook of course, is the number one platform for sharing and it’s no wonder that criminals and the FBI alike use it as the number one source for information gathering. A whopping 20.4 million people share their full birth date and whilst this isn’t a problem at signing up, displaying such information on Facebook’s front page can be costly.
Sharing full birthdays however, pales in comparison to the admission that many people like to share when they are leaving their home. A whopping 4.8 million people like to do this; inviting of course, the thieves who scour Facebook each day for such information. Another big thing adults like to share is details about their love life. If Claire and Andrew are no longer seeing each other, all of Facebook has to know—that is pretty much how things work nowadays.
Will adults think more about what they share? Not likely. Although the admission that too much is shared is now a reality for most adults using Facebook, the practice of sharing is now a habit. Some would even say an addiction, much like many are addicted to Facebook itself.
