Chip Shot: Intel Global ‘Mobile Etiquette’ Study Examines Online Sharing Behaviors Around the World

A recent global study by Intel examined the current state of mobile etiquette and digital sharing across eight countries – Australia, Brazil, China, France, India, Indonesia, Japan and the United States. The majority of adults and teens around the world are sharing online via mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops, Ultrabook™ systems) and report feeling better connected to family and friends because they are able to share and consume information online anytime, anywhere. However, the global survey also revealed a perception of “oversharing,” with at least 6 out of 10 adults and teens saying they believe other people divulge too much information online about themselves.
