PRIVACY CONCERNS

We live in the “Information Age” where tons of information about anything you ever wanted to know is readily available at a click of a button. This includes a lot of personal information. The Millennial Generation (or Generation Y) has basically been brought up with a smart phone or electronic device at their fingertips, and Generation Z has pretty much been born with one in their hands. As soon as they could use their fingers and see a screen, they were introduced to electronic devices connected to the Internet. They are not afraid to use these devices as many of their predecessors were, and they love to socialize through apps that are freely available. Everything you want to know (and things you may not want to know) about a person can be shared with the rest of the world. Nothing is private and there is almost nothing that is off-limits.
