Millennials Exchange Privacy for Relevant Ads [Infographic]

Are millennials clueless when it comes to online privacy, or do they simply care less about privacy than previous generations?

IGD Research recently asked tech savvy decision-makers how they felt about data targeting and online privacy. Millennials are the least likely generation to opt-out of ads, and a majority of them don’t mind giving up their personal data as long as companies are delivering information that interests them. In fact, over 40 percent of millennials notice and appreciate companies that know how to target them with relevant offers.
