INFOGRAPHIC: Facebook Sharing Habits, U.S. Vs. Europe

Online reputation-management company Secure.me examined some 1 million Facebook profiles to determine sharing habits and how they compared between the U.S. and Europe.

Secure.me found that overall, 88 percent of U.S. Facebook users publish sensitive data, compared with just 76 percent in Europe.

U.S. users of the social network were more likely to share their hometowns, family members, relationship statuses, and education, while European Facebook members were more likely to share their birthdays, which genders they are interested in, their political views, and their religions.
