Study: Teens Limit Personal Profile Info

Worried your younger sibling or child is revealing a little too much online? Apparently all the hype about kids putting too much personal information online and making them susceptible to online predators may just be, well, hype.

According to the Associated Press, teens often share their first names and photos on their personal online profiles, but most keep their full names under wraps and generally keep their profiles private.

The Pew Internet and American Life Project study found that two-thirds of teens with profiles on blogs or social-networking sites have restricted access to their profiles in some fashion, such as by requiring passwords or making them available only to friends on an approved list.

Yup I know! On myspace I'm set to private. I do have my full name out on the net, but I never provide my address etc. So far in the past seven years I've had a blog (on several websites), I have not encountered anything serious. Touchwood though!

I think you get the odd few who aren't so careful, but the majority are very aware of the dangers. I like that if you are under a certain age on Myspace the profile automatically sets to Private. And also on Facebook that it's automatically private.
