More trust NSA with private data than Google


A Survata survey finds that respondents give a score of 7.39 for how much they fear Google having their private data, on a scale of one-10 with 10 being the highest level of fear. The same respondents give a score of 7.06 for the fear level of the NSA having their private data. Just over half of the respondents, more of whom are female than male, are aged 13-24. Company official:

Survata was surprised to see respondents said they’d be more upset with a company like Google seeing their personal data than the NSA…One guess is that respondents assume the NSA is only looking for ‘guilty’ persons when scouring personal data, whereas a company like Google would use personal data to serve ads or improve their own products.
