A European study into file sharing behaviour reveals that file sharing has increased from 2010 to 2011. Four in five respondents share photos, documents, spreadsheets, presentations, music and videos via email, while only seven percent burn discs to share with friends and family.

The survey reveals that 82 percent of European respondents shared more files in 2011 than they did in 2010. This trend is being led by survey participants in the UK (92 percent), Belgium (83 percent) and Denmark (82 percent), while 24 percent of respondents in the Netherlands and 22 percent in Sweden are sharing fewer files in 2011than in 2010.

The main reasons given for sharing less this year are that there are fewer opportunities to share files (40 percent), it is too time-consuming (13 percent) and concerns over privacy (13 percent). Interestingly security worries do not seem to concern respondents in Belgium, Netherlands or Sweden much, who did not cite this as an explanation for sharing a reduced amount of files in 2011.
