Even Millennials Worry About Their Online Past

Their friends are spilling secrets

With social networking on the rise, people have quickly come to realize that keeping their private lives private is increasingly out of their hands. A survey by JWT found that fully 67 percent of American and British adults agree that in the age of social networks, "I feel as though privacy is dead." But it's not just older adults who are chafing at being overexposed. Even share-happy teens and millennials are finding it harder to maintain their privacy. Nearly two-thirds of 13- 17-year-olds agree that their friends are making it hard to maintain their privacy online because their friends share everything.
