More than half of people are not confident about their privacy online, according to a study commissioned by Facebook, which has endured a torrid year when it comes to data protection.




The Inclusive Internet Index shows people are revealing less about themselves online, which could be bad news for firms like Facebook that rely on data to target advertising.




The study showed that new privacy laws in the EU have eased privacy fears.



Most people don't trust the internet with their personal information.
That's the finding of a study commissioned by Facebook less than a year after it confessed to a "breach of trust" over the Cambridge Analytica scandal, during which the data of 50 million users was compromised.
Facebook's Inclusive Internet Index 2019, compiled in partnership with the Economist Intelligence Unit, surveyed 5,069 people around the world about their online lives.
