Teens, cell phones, social media and privacy

Earlier today a colleague sent out an email to illustrate how teens are using social media differently. A woman he knows (apparently in her teens) lost the numbers on her cell. Her solution for getting them back was to create a Facebook group asking her friends to post their numbers.

While 20 people have joined the group, only three have posted their numbers – just 15 percent. Is the issue concern with privacy? Apathy?

What do you think?

  1. The way teens view privacy seems to have changed over the years to the point that I would think this is a sign more of apathy and priority rather than concerns about privacy.
