ABC News has an interesting story how teens using a tablet PC, called Health eTouch, were more likely to share sensitive information on their medical questionnaire than they would talking face-to-face with their doctor..
As a result of having teens use the Health eTouch device, doctors stated that they were able to identify "revealing behavioral patterns that could lead to adolescent morbidity or mortality."
Today's teens have grown-up in the digital world of social networks, virtual worlds and blogs. Their "totally wired" experience has conditioned them to share, under a sense of perceived anonymity, personal information in the digital sphere.
This is an important study and one that shows the depth of influence technology has had, and will continue to have, on current and future generations.
