This study examines college students’ consumption and contribution of geographic information through Location-enabled online tools and/or services as well as their perception of risk and privacy. It was found that the consumption frequency is positively related to their knowledge in GIS and geography, but their GI contribution is not related. However, this relationship does not translate into students’ concern about potential privacy disclosure or their willingness to share personal location information through using location-enabled online tools and/or services. They conclude by discussing future research directions
