The opinion that private data isn’t safe on social media “dominates” Russian society as it’s shared by more than a half of the country’s population, a new survey reveals. Fifty-five percent of those polled said they were certain that user data on social media is accessed by third parties. Some level of confidence that their information is safe was expressed by only 34 percent, with 14 percent saying that their data is “certainly” not misused. However, people are split on how to react to this state of affairs – 55 percent expressed a “negative attitude” over the lack of information security, while 52 percent said “the use of personal data by third parties possesses no threat,” a poll by the All-Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VTSIOM) shows.
