The Pew Charitable Trusts: News Room

Most (57%) teenagers are now creating content online in one form or another, either by blogging or creating web pages, according to a Pew Internet and American Life Project report. While I think this can be a great way to get kids involved, I worry about some of the issues related to the privacy and the information that these kids are sharing. "Don't post it on the Internet unless you would post the same thing in a grocery store bulletin board," is the advice I give them. Share their ideas? Their experiences? Certainly. Be aware of exactly what's out there? Critical.
