Pew Internet: "Anonymity, Privacy, and Security Online"

http://j.mp/18FORFC  (Pew)

   "A new survey finds that most internet users would like to be anonymous
    online, but many think it is not possible to be completely anonymous
    online. Some of the key findings:  86% of internet users have taken
    steps online to remove or mask their digital footprints-ranging from
    clearing cookies to encrypting their email.  55% of internet users
    have taken steps to avoid observation by specific people,
    organizations, or the government.  The representative survey of 792
    internet users also finds that notable numbers of internet users say
    they have experienced problems because others stole their personal
    information or otherwise took advantage of their visibility online."
