We Are All Suckers When It Comes To Social Networks

A new study suggests that, regardless whether you are a hacker or regular ol' IT guy, we all fall for the same crap on social networking sites.

Two experimental profiles were created, using the same information (age, sex, interests), but different jobs - corresponding to those of the respondents. After being contacted, the participants were interviewed in order to determine what kind of information they would be willing to disclose to a person working in the same industry, but still unknown to them.
