Facebook ‘dead and buried to teens’

In part of the study’s research with Italian Facebook users, 40% of users had never changed their privacy settings and 80% said they “were not concerned or did not care” if their personal data was available and accessed, either by an organisation or an individual.

Everything I post on Facebook is by default public, mainly because it’s the same content I share on Twitter. Given all the data Facebook has about me, I’ve still never deliberately clicked on one of its ads. No one is going to spend the time to manicure their profile settings when Facebook itself doesn’t know if it wants to be a public or private network.
