Infographic: Social media privacy

This infographic illustrates the general feelings that users have about their online privacy expectations in regards to participating in social media.

The infographic below, courtesy of MDG Advertising, suggests a general resignation toward social media privacy. Those surveyed acknowledge that it's hard to keep information private — or even know what information is being collected — in short, there's a healthy lack of trust for social media even among people who are regular participants. It's not that surprising. We eat potato chips, knowing all about the fat and calories, but I don't think Lay's is in any danger of going out of business.

If you're trying to educate users in your organization about the safe use of social media, this infographic might make a good conversation-starter for a presentation.
