The following questions were submitted by Future Brief readers. The poll, taken by a statistically-valid sample of more than 2000 adult Americans, was conducted by Zogby International, an opinion research firm, on December 15-16, 2005.

QUESTION: What effect do you feel that emerging technologies are having upon personal privacy?

RESULTS:

-Greatly increasing privacy 2%

-Somewhat increasing privacy 5%

-No effect—we have exactly the same level of privacy that we did ten years ago. 7%

-Somewhat decreasing personal privacy 44%

-Greatly decreasing privacy 40%

-Not sure/other 2%

(Margin of error is +/- 2.2%)

Overall, 7% of respondants felt that emerging technologies are increasing their sense of personal privacy, while 84% of respondants felt that emerging technologies are reducing their personal privacy. 9% of respondants either felt that emerging technologies were not having any effect on their level of privacy or simply had no opinion.
