Think Before You Speak: Some Hard Truths About Mobile Etiquette


The next time you take to Twitter to rant about the length of the line at the grocery store or snap a photo of your lunch to upload on Facebook, you may want to think twice. No one wants to know.

The survey polled nearly 10,000 adults and teenagers from Australia, Brazil, China, France, India, Indonesia, Japan and the United States.

Roughly 60% of those polled said that too much was being revealed online, including inappropriate photos, unsolicited opinions, offensive language and mundane details of the ins and outs of daily life.
