So, let me know if there's an easy solution to this problem: 55% of the people who use geo-tracking services to share their location on Facebook and Twitter say they are worried about security implications.
Hmmm...if only there was some way that these people could ease their concerns. Hmmm...
45% said they were worried that their location could be tracked by burglars. 49% of women said they were highly concerned that potential stalkers would be able to find them.
Yeah, it is a pretty ridiculous study, because all these people would need to do ease their fears would be to disable the geo-tracking services.
However, 71% of the survey takers said they only share their locations with friends. Apparently many of them are still concerned that the information could be compromised.
There's no question that social networking users are willing to give up more and more of their privacy, but how far will it go?
