Under 20% of Consumers See Value in Sharing Data
We could finish with last week’s 5.2 million name data breach at Marriott but that is barely news these days. So let’s instead share this 23-country study on consumer trust in digital media from GroupM. Just half of global consumers feel technology improves their lives and people in richer countries are even more skeptical. Only 18% think sharing data leads to improved products and services and just 20% are willing to share their data for free. Another 42% would share if rewarded and 38% don’t want to share at all.
