Inside Network has concluded that fifty percent of Facebook's young female members are utterly incapable of managing their privacy settings.

According to a recent survey conducted by the market research firm, only 11 percent of the surveyed individuals "understood" FB's default privacy tools, while the remaining 39 percent reported a "partial" understanding.

Finally, the survey discovered that many users were "baffled" about adding or removing specific information from their profiles.

However, the market research firm did emphasize that "frequent redesigns" of the ever-evolving Facebook user interface had undoubtedly contributed to the above-mentioned phenomenon.
