Teens, Privacy and Online Social Networks

AP reports that teens generally don’t think twice about including their first names and photos on their personal online profiles, but most refrain from using full names or making their profiles fully public.For the Pew Internet & American Life Project report see http://www.pewinternet.org/PPF/r/211/report_display.aspFor the AP story see http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/2007-04-18-teen-net-study_N.htm
