ABSTRACT

Because of the growing amount of digital technology and people’s increasing dependence on that, digital literacy and privacy should be considered as a vital factor in contemporary digital society. We evaluated the effect of first-level and second-level digital literacy on privacy concern. The research analyzed 72,474 sample longitudinal data based on the ‘Korean Media Panel Survey' from 2014 to 2016. The results showed that digital skill has a significant effect on digital usage. In addition, while medium related skill has a significant effect on privacy concern, the effect of contents related skill is questionable. Finally, social usage did moderated effects of the relationship between digital skill and privacy concern, productive usage did not. This study identifies the theoretical foundations of digital literacy and privacy concern. Also, the findings of this study can provide empirical evidence to better understand the digital literacy and privacy concern.
