The ICO has conducted a survey into social network content. The ICO has launched a new website to help young people understand their information rights. The first section contains tips and advice on safe social networking. ICO has found that almost six in 10 have never considered that what they put online now might be permanent and could be accessed years hence. More than seven in 10 do not worry that their personal profile can be viewed by strangers and 7% do not think privacy settings are important and actively want everyone to see their full profile.
