Is Social Networking’s Honeymoon Nearly Over?

Technology analyst Scott Steinberg answers the question, “Why is it that privacy is not a huge topic in social media?”

The recent launch of Google+, which offers users a convenient way of managing who gets to see what, addresses the social networking privacy issue to an extent. However, the vast majority of Facebook’s multitudes are still not terribly concerned — they’re having too much fun.

There’s a need to pay more attention to privacy, though, and Steinberg is confident that social networkers are awakening to that fact and becoming less blase about the potential ramifications of sharing so much of their personal lives online.
