Only 24% ofthe females agreed.91% of the males thought computers, smartphones the internetare essential. Only 75% of the females thought the same.
    • AnalysisWhile the study is limited by the small amount of respondents sometrends are clearly discernible.Many are sceptical towards Facebook. Contrary to what one mightassume a majority of those are highly internet-savvy and participatesin different online communities, uses the internet to keep staying intouch with people and to shop.No one just clicks Allow; the minimum criteria is that the service is feltto add a substantial value to the user, what ever that might be.The main issues are related to integrity and by the answers it wouldseems that if the question had only regarded Facebook as a way toauthenticate the user, i.e. no exchange of content between the serviceand Facebook, more had chosen to Allow.
    • AnalysisSo, this is not so much about being negative to using one’s FacebookID as a key to other sites as about wanting to have control over whatis known to whom, where, and when.While the vast majority displaying this attitude can be attributed topeople in the 31-65 year old age bracket half of the respondents in the21-30 year old bracket also displayed this characteristic – a handful ofthose doesn’t even have a Facebook account while yet viewing theinternet as an essential commodity.No one aged 20 or less participated in this survey, which makes itimpossible to make any conclusions regarding that age group.
    • ConclusionsWhen you set up a new site/service, don’t rely solely on Facebooklogin.Think twice before you decide that your site should syndicate contentto Facebook or any other such site – people want to have control overtheir electronic trace or shadow.If you decide to go this route, be sure you let your members havecontrol over where and how – and to whom – content they produce atyou site are shared at others (i.e. Facebook).A too strong connection to Facebook and some people will inevitablydismiss you, without a second thought.Don’t expect preferences to follow certain patterns. Age is not a goodway to judge attitude in these matters.
