The PBS presentation raised many issues with teens and socail networking. Teens are now less concerned with privacy and aren't aware of the dangers online networking can lead to. One issue raised was online preadators. Teens often have contests on who can have the most friends on Facebook or MySpace and accept friend requests from people they don't know. The unknown persons can simply say start talking to you, then in time want to meet. When they then exchange infromation, the young teen can be in danger of rape, death, and kidnapping. Anything is possible. Social networking can also lead to suicides because of the increased anount of cyberbullying. Parents should be more aware of what happens in their childs' life and teens should be more aware of the dangers in social networking. They need be careful of the pictures they post and the things they say.
