Sounds like oversharing Tweets and status updates are the new drunk dials.
Retrevo Gadgetology conducted a study that looks at how people use technology in their lives. They surveyed 1,000 people from various age groups and gender. Of their respondents, 32 percent of people over the age of 25 regret posting things online, and more than half of the people under the age of 25 say they regretted posting things online.
When asked “have you ever posted anything online about YOURSELF that you regretted?” 35 percent of the whole group said “yes.” In fact, more than 25 percent of those who said yes also said the posting in question ruined their marriage, relationship, or complicated things at home or work.
Too bad the survey didn’t come out in time to serve as a warning to the most unfortunate Tweeter this month.
