35% of Americans cite privacy concerns as their best description of the negative aspects or implications of a more technology-connected lifestyle, according to [pdf] a National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and McAfee study released in November 2011. Data from the “2011 Internet Home Users Survey” indicates that 22% dislike the cost implications of new devices and connectivity/service plans, while 15% miss the face-to-face social connections with family, friends, and community. Less than 1 in 10 say they dislike being always connected and reachable by work, matched by the proportion that say there are no negative aspects or implications to a more connected lifestyle.
