Beschrijving The Next Billion Users

Why do citizens of states with strict surveillance care so little about their digital privacy? Why do Brazilians eschew geo-tagging on social media? What drives young Indians to friend "foreign" strangers on Facebook and give "missed calls" to people? Payal Arora answers these questions and many more about the internet's next billion users.
