Part of the problem is a lot of people assume they maintain ownership of data uploaded to a service provider (Facebook, gmail) simply because they have a login/password. And that's not always the case - sometimes you just have a service agreement but it's unclear who owns the data. Another part is then assuming you truly control who can "see" the data.For instance you might set things to "friends only" - but you don't know if your friend is downloading copies of pictures you've posted (or taking screen shots) and sharing them with others.And both of these I think play a part in many people's comfort level with sharing which in parent/child relaationships could skew the child's level of what's personal versus public. If a kid gets used to their life constantly being broadcasted on a format like Facebook, that could effect their idea of "privacy" in the future.
