Summary Box: Study finds young care about privacy
SHATTERING ASSUMPTIONS: New study finds that young adults generally care as much about online privacy as older Americans, despite all their raunchy postings.
THE BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT: Researchers say young adults are sometimes encouraged by sites to reveal personal information to participate in social networks, even though they may prefer not to.
WHAT THIS MEANS: Lawmakers and educators shouldn’t assume that young adults aren’t looking for privacy protections.
