European Schoolnet, coordinator of European Insafe network have produced a report based on young people maintaining their privacy online. The report was produced as a result of a survey talking to 21,872 people across Europe.
Some key findings of the report include:
- 57% of young people make their online social network profiles public and disclose a great deal of personal information
- The under 10 age group seems to have relatively little awareness of the dangers of going to meet someone they have been chatting with online. More than a third indicated hypothetically they would go to meet online contacts without telling parents.
- Almost a third of youngsters responding indicated that they didn’t know what to do about making information public or private.
