The way I see it, it's like sex. People who are taught "abstinance only" and are told nothing about protection and stuff are way more likely to have sex anyway and get pregnant/an STI then people who are actually taught about sex and protection and stuff.
Basically, kids shouldn't just be told to straight out not do social stuff online, cause the way we live now, *everyone* does and they will anyway. They should just be told to be cautious and not give out too much info.

Late reply, but I agree. Amazing analogy, by the way. ;)
When I was 12 years old, I told myself that I'd never sign up for myspace. A year later, what happened? I signed up, and now I'm also active on two other social networking sites.

I also think that it should be up to the user's discretion as to what info they put online. I have my name, age, city, and picture on myspace, as well as my school in my about me. I have friends who I've never met personally, but it's still up there.

Personally, I don't see the big deal about myspace. I've never run into problems on it. Not saying that I never will, but I feel safe, despite having that info on there. My school has cops all over the place, and they check you constantly for ID if you're inside the building. I doubt I'll be taken away, and my city is pretty big. I feel fine.

I know this is an old topic but after I read it, I had to post.

It's unbeleivable how these sick, affenders can live with themselves. I mean, playing tricks on little kids minds? Thats just wrong. One of my friends has witnessed this. She was on a website and she saw a guy threatning a girl to take a picture of her naked and sent it to him or he'd hackher computer.. She didn't report she just shut down her computer and never played again.

This is a serious and dangerous topic. Be very careful on the web. Bad people lurk around, waiting for the right time to strike, so watch your back.

I know this is qutie an old topic, but I feel like adding my two cents.

Thanks for posting this monkeysmom. :]

And people really do need to be careful about whom they're talking to. Not just kids either, everyone. I've luckily never had a scary expierience, but just because nothings happened to me doesn't mean that I go around being stupid on what information I put on the internet. I do have a myspace, but with that I only mostly add only people I know or bands, and if I don't know someone I add, then I make sure my details can't really tell you too much about me. I never lie about things like my age, but I never tell someone my real location or any specific details about myself, because I know what can happen if someone who wants to hurt me finds out stuff like that. So, as stated, people need to be careful about who they're talking to, and what details they let those people know, just because some people are nice and trustworthy, doesn't mean everyone else is.

My librarians friend (long story) was chatting with this guy, and they kept talking, and giving out information, until the guy asked if he could meet her. She asked her parents, and they said YES. As time got closer, she got worried, and she asked a cop if they could come with her... just in case. She is so glad that the cop came. The "cute guy" turned out to be a perverted old man.
