Our Naiveté Seems to Know No Bounds

The story hit the internet today that a bare majority of people no longer trust Facebook to obey laws protecting personal information.

Which causes me to wonder: What, if anything, does it take to erode the naiveté of people?

As a species, we tend to be trusting. Even in the face of compelling facts to the contrary. Whether that’s a good thing or bad thing, you can decide for yourself. What I do know is that there is never a dearth of people willing to take advantage of it.
