Pew Research Center Publishes Privacy and Information Sharing Report

Pew Research Center’s Internet, Science & Tech division released a new report, “Privacy and Information Sharing.” It is based on a survey of 461 U.S. adults and nine online focus groups of 80 people, which found that many respondents would share personal information or allow surveillance if they felt they were getting value from it. For example, 47% of respondents said retail loyalty cards that give discounts are acceptable, although they know stores track their purchases.

Additionally, the majority of respondents feel it would be acceptable for a workplace to install security cameras after a series of thefts. However, many expressed concerns about the security of their personal data in the wake of data breaches and shared their frustrations with unsolicited attention such as emails, phone calls, and customized ads.

For more information, read the report’s summary.
