Hello native speakers :)

Please tell me, which of these two versions is 100% grammatically correct? Thanks a lot!

1) With more people informed about the advantages of taking exercise, the information will be spread among other people faster.

2) With more people being informed about the advantages of taking exercise, the information will be spread among other people faster.

Both are grammatically correct, but their meanings are slightly different.

1) Refers to people who were previously informed earlier (and still are).

2) Refers to people presently being informed.
