"MySpace" Cadets Are up for Sudden Death
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v72 n1 p25-26 Sep 2006
Reports of teens and pre-teens stalked or abducted by predators who got personal information the students provided on websites like MySpace.com now worry many school officials. These popular websites let students write just about anything about themselves for the world to see. Many don't grasp that not only their friends and classmates are reading their sites, but also complete strangers who may have the worst of intentions. As a result, principals are scrambling to inform both students and their parents--who in most cases have no idea what their kids are doing online--about the dangers of posting information on these sites.
