The Identity Theft Resource Center (ITRC), a nationally recognized non-profit focusing on identity theft and related issues, has just launched a Facebook Social Media Survey to measure interaction trends between internet users and Facebook. The ITRC is conducting this survey in order to better help victims with Facebook-related identity theft concerns and issues.
“As our world transforms more and more into a cyber environment, social networking becomes a larger part of our lives. Because of this, it is important to understand how social networking users comprehend the safety risks while engaging on such sites. This can help in efforts to protect consumers by defining problem areas.” says Nikki Junker, Social Media Coordinator for the ITRC. “The survey results will help the ITRC in developing informative materials and documents. These publications aim to educate consumers in order to help minimize their risk of becoming victims of identity theft and mitigate the losses of those who have already become victims.”
To enter the contest just visit the ITRC’s website and click on the Do You Facebook? link or click here to take the survey directly. The contest began January 20th 2012 and will run through February 28, 2012. Five $100 prize winners will be announced and contacted on February 29, 2012. The survey results will be released on the ITRC website shortly thereafter.
