More and more websites offer the exchange of private information like hobbies and interests. Above all, mostly young persons use communities like MySpace, Xing, Facebook or StudiVZ. Every third of the 14 to 29 year-olds have once or more often participated in one of those offers. Even 7% of the 12 to 19 year-olds Internet users have contributed content to MySpace.
