Submission + - Teens Share Alarming Amounts Of Personal Info (net-security.org)

An anonymous reader writes: A Symantec study revealed that despite news headlines, teens are providing more information than they should with strangers: 69 percent of 13-17 year olds have updated their status on social networking sites to include their physical location. Girls are more likely than boys to chat with people online that they don’t know in the offline world. Approximately two in five teens say they don’t tell their parents what they do while they are online (42 percent) and that they would change their online behavior if they knew their parents were watching (36 percent).
