Online sharing, how much is too much? 網路分享,多少是太多?


Whether it is photos, personal status or unwanted comments, most Americans think people ’overshare’ personal information online and a third admit not everything they post is true.
A survey for Intel Corporation on mobile etiquette and digital sharing showed that 90 percent of Americans think too much is being divulged, and nearly half feel overwhelmed by all the data that is out there.
One in five of the 2,008 people questioned by Ipsos Observer for Intel admitted that some of what they post is false.
For many, sharing online with smartphones, laptops and tablets is easier than in person. A third of people admitted they were more comfortable with digital sharing than face to face, and a quarter said they had a different personality online.
The wealth of digital information can also be annoying.
