Lee Rainie will discuss privacy, confidentiality, and the use of data at the 2013 meeting of the Pacific Chapter of the American Association for Public Opinion Research
Amanda Lenhart presents nine major themes from the Project’s five-report series on Teens and Online Privacy
86% of online adults have taken steps to avoid surveillance by other people or organizations when using the internet. Despite precautions, 21% have had an email or social media account hijacked and 11% have had vital information stolen.
58% of American teens have downloaded an app to a cell phone or tablet. More than half of teen apps users have avoided an app due to concerns about sharing their personal information.
Teens often rely on themselves and the guidance they get from the websites they use to figure out how to manage their privacy online, but when they do seek advice, they go primarily to peers and parents.
Amanda Lenhart briefed the State of Maryland’s Children’s Online Privacy Working Group at the Attorney General’s Office in Baltimore on the findings from the Teens, Social Media and Privacy report.
