- Young people are reluctant to share their personal data with Facebook, Google and Twitter. With WhatsApp, they have fewer problems.
This is evident from answers of 1135 young people on questions of television EenVandaag.
The current affairs program said the youth (12 to 24) in its panel for their opinion on the various social media. Only one in five young people entrust their personal data to Facebook. Even Twitter (24 percent) and Google (34 percent) score low. WhatApp amounted to 59 percent, mainly due to the encryption of messages that the application has set this summer.
Three quarters of young people find it a problem that WhatsApp user profiles will pass to parent company Facebook. The majority, however, does not intend to discontinue use of the messaging service. The ease them probably more important than privacy.
