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.
