Infographic: People Are Sharing Too Much

Research from Euro RSCG Worldwide finds that people talk too much. They never shut up. As a result, they’re giving away their privacy.

“The Digital Life” study found that people around the world are concerned about privacy, with 60 percent of the 7,213 participants saying that people should stop oversharing online. The biggest concern is for millenials; 70 percent say they think that generation doesn’t have a sense of privacy and two-thirds of millenials agree.

To our point about multitasking, half of the respondents expressed concern that technology and multitasking are eroding the ability to think deeply and concentrate.

“The Digital Life” study included respondents over the age of 18 and from 19 countries including Belgium, Brazil, China, the U.S., and Argentina. An infographic after the jump illustrates the findings.
