Abstract

How does online know-how relate to people's tendencies to manage their privacy? A survey of a diverse group of young adults' online skills and privacy practices reveals patterns of online privacy management, specifically with job search in mind. Findings suggest that women, Whites, and those with higher Internet privacy skills are more likely to manage their online profiles actively.
