The numbers are pretty funny, if you think about it. A survey that Netpop conducted recently in light of Facebook's impending IPO filing showed that 42% of users are "uneasy" about the information they're sharing on the social network. Tim Berners-Lee, who's credited for inventing the Internet, even weighed in on the privacy issues that people face online, telling them to demand for their data from the likes of Facebook, Twitter, and Google.
All this fuss about privacy and data requests give people the impression that their information is probably worth a ton of money. But an online tool by privacy firm Abine called the Val-You Calculator is indicating otherwise.
