Buchanan, T; Joinson, A; Paine, C; Reips, U D (2007). Looking for medical information on the Internet: Self-disclosure, privacy and trust. He@lth Information on the Internet, 58(1):8-9.

Abstract

Internet-based health information may be easier for people to access than traditional sources, in part because it can be found more privately. However there are threats to this privacy. Awareness of this, and loss of trust in Internet search technology, may reduce willingness to look for information online.
