Recent studies have shown that kids are posting too much sensitive information online.  Many parents believe that kids are not thinking about what they say before they post it online.  Also, the pictures are too revealing and too much swearing is being shared.  Many parents are completely unaware of what kids have on their pages or what type of posts their kids make on a daily basis.

A)  If you REFLECT on social networking, Why do you think kids share so much information with complete strangers online? 

B)   Social networking such as party lines and chat rooms have been around for 20 years, so how have advances in technology changed and made sites like Facebook and Myspace more interesting now?”

C)  Do you believe there is a line that shouldn’t be crossed when it comes to pictures and things said online on sites like Facebook or Myspace?   What is that line?

D)  Even though kids have been told about the number of cyber predators online, why do you think kids still put so much personal information online for everyone to see?

    b) on these chat rooms and stuff , people can talk to all kinds of people and they can also share photos , links , and request other people to be someones friend
    c) yes , some kids have to much of there body showing on websites and pedifiles like that kind of stuff and thats just giving them non-needed attention

    d) they dont see the real danger in it and they dont like to listen to there parent . and most kids think its cool to say mean stuff or what there doing , or where there at .

    C.) I think people should be aloud to post pictures on facebook but they need to have it set where only there friends online can see them

    D.) I think the reason they still put personal information online is because they think its cool or they want to meet people online. Also because they want people to know about them or just because every one else does so why not them

    A. I think the reason why kids share too much information to complete strangers online because they think they can get more friends by talking or sharing information with strangers to get closer with them. My opinion I wouldn’t share none of my information to anyone unless I know them.

    B. I think that facebook and myspace is more interesting now because it is more fun that chat rooms. Also, chat rooms you won’t know anyone and it’s no fun. Facebook and Myspace you can be able to look up people that you know instead of going to a chat room with people that are strangers.

    C. I think that pictures and other information stuff should only be on Facebook or Myspace because on those sites you can block “Everyone” to see your profile, information, etc; but on chat sites you can’t block people. Also, it’s safer to only share pictures, or information on a site that you know people on.

    D. I think that since teenagers go on Facebook or Myspace a lot they won’t care because nothing has happen to them yet. Some teenagers will be on chat sites giving out information and they haven’t been kidnapped, etc;
    Most teenagers won’t care if strangers go look at there information.

    A.) Because kids talk to them for like a week and they fell like they know the people so they can share information like that like pictures, and personal post and stuff.
    B.) They changed by letting anyone get one and they made them more fun by putting games and a lot of apps on there to download.
    C.) No not really if your page is private, and people aren’t really going to want to put anything really bad out there because there friends and sometimes they go to there school and it will spread so kids really know what to put and what not to put out there.
    D.) I think kids do it because they think it wont happen to them but most of the time it does they just don’t know it so they think its someone around there age and they really don’t know because they cant see there pictures or talk to them unless its through computer.

    A.) I don’t think they’re really thinking about them being complete strangers. That also leads me to believe, that they don’t feel like they’re giving out to much information.

    B.) i don’t really know that complete answer. I guess it’s just because kids started liking it. Everybody got a faceboook, and now suddenly it’s like the most famous, and visited website.

    C.) Yes, I feel that you shouldn’t revile too much info. Well, you shouldn’t revile too much anything.

    D.) Like, I said in part A, I don’t thing they’re really thinking when they actually do it. Also, i feel that they feel that none of this will ever happen to them. They feel that they can trust everybody on the internet. They just don’t believe what they hear, or believe it and just don’t act upon it.

    A. Because there bored and want to make new friends, it also makes the conversation more interesting and gives the people something to talk about.

    b. because its personal , you have a picture of you and you can get on and off as you please. i think its better cause you can add people so they will or will not be able to talk to you. you could keep your page private, and with chat rooms everybody is open to see you and write you .

    c. yes you shouldn’t be posting pictures of you in your underwear and bra and stuff like that. its a public site and you should have some respect for yourself, and you should talk like you have some home training. dont put your whole life on the internet.

    d. because they dont care or pay attention. they just have the site to make new friends, but some are careful on who they add. like i only add kids around my age, i dont add any adults unless there family 🙂

    A) i think that kids today share so much information because sometimes they get tricked by the strangers when the strangers say that they are someone else or they don’t put their real name on and the kids just start talking to them. ( just my opinion from experience)

    B)Mainly now the websites don’t seem like they can be a problem for people or kids because most of the ones that are smart can probably ask questions about the other person or just to see who they are.

    C) not really i think that posting your picture online on websites like Facebook or Myspace isn’t that much of the problem because i don’t think that anyone would care what your picture looks like.

    D) i don’t think that kids put too much personal stuff online i just think that the kind of people they talk to is a problem because sometimes the kids talk to people who they don’t even know.

    A). Kids share so much information with strangers because they probably don’t think nothing will happen to them if they give it out. They probably just think in their head, “Oh, that’s not going to happen to me”. But they never know.

    B). Advances in technology changed and made site like Facebook and Myspace more interesting now because it’s allowing more kids/teens to meet more people.

    C). Yes, There is a line that shouldn’t be crossed when it comes to pictures & things being said. If you don’t know the person, then you shouldn’t be sending pictures, giving any of your personal information out, or even agreeing you would like to meet them sometime. If your page isn’t private on Facebook or Myspace, then i think you should watch some of the updates you post & some pictures you put on there.

    D). I think that kids still put so much personal information online because they don’t think anything will happen to them. They know that there are cyber predators online & that stuff really does happen to kids who give out to much information, but they don’t really think anything of it. Most kids think nothing will ever happen to them!

    A.] i think they share so much information because they feel like they are actually have friends they don’t know, they give trust to people they have never even met.

    B.]i think the technology of the networks like facebook and myspace is like the I.M. and how you look people up and it shows their information things like that. like we see the information and it says for ex.
    Gender: Male
    Age: 16
    etc. and we actually believe it, when it could be a 61 year old guy or women!

    C.]There is a line and that line is when they start asking were do you live, or when are your parents not home, things like that are what crossing the line is!

    D.]i guess they keep thinking that nothing is going to happen to them until something bad actually happens.

    A- I think that they do this just for attention and just to do it And i’m saying they might do it because, they think it’s cute and nothing will happen to them.

    B- Party lines I don’t think they are good because, I know you have to be over 18 to be on it and you have dang 12-16 year old getting on and saying that they are 17-20 on there and they are only about 12,13,14 and etc.. online chat rooms you can look at there picture if they are posting there right picture up and the scariest thing about is that they dudes and guys can be just as old as the people on the party lines.

    C-I think there should be a line. I’m saying like you can’t tell them that they can’t give out there number it’s what they choose to do and they will see what kinds of things will happen when they do that. I mean if they want to send out naked pictures and and send out dirty pictures let them do it and they will see what kind of conquences they will get when they get caught.

    D- The reason why they still do it is because, they probably think that cyber predators is not true or real. And also they say that they ain’t going to find me or they ain’t going to come and get me so it’s just what it is

    A. Some kids share so much information with strangers because they are trying to find new friends. They want to tell them everything but you don’t tell your friends everything online you tell them in person face to face. That way you can know that they are the age they said they were and not a old person. Many kids are getting kidnapped because of this.

    B. Advances in technology have change to were their are face book and stuff more interesting is that they have a lot of games and apps people can play around with. Many people can edit their profiles, have little groupies, and things. Also many people have face book’s and stuff so it is a good chance people meet other people online.

    C. Yes there is a line because people should know what kind of pictures not to put on public websites. You shouldn’t want to show off your body to strangers so they can see it. Once a stranger sends you a friends request and you except they will try to talk to you and get personal information. This is very unsafe. The line is to not put pictures like that on public websites. Totally inappropiate and not being a respect person. You should respect your body. Not show it off to the world to see.

    D. Kids still put personal information online because they must not care about the people. Most kids try to block their page from people they don’t know so they won’t look at their page. Also most kids don’t think it’s a big deal to put information about their name, age, school, and etc. Just might want people to reconize them and be their friend. So people will know how their like, and what they like to do. I don’t think it’s a big deal to put your name and stuff just put appropiate things online.

    A.) Kids share so much sensitive information because things like Facebook is a place to meet new people ! in my opinion Facebook is the way to find out what type of events are going on and what time, you can not only find things like that but also just in news !

    B.) I think technology has made sites like Facebook and Myspace more interesting because its more personal, I know predators can put a fake picture online but like in my case I only add people I know ! With pictures and the bio’s it is a whole lot safer to chat and talk.

    C.) Absolutely ! Putting revealing pictures put of yourself or someone else you basically asking for someone to come at you all crazy, also it puts you out there like your something that hopefully your not !

    D.) I think a lot of kids think that it cant happen to them, but that’s why them social networking sites have an age limit because when your older you know how to look out for people like that !

    A. I thinks kids share so much personal information online because, they are simply stubborn. When you are a young teenager growing up you feel like you know so much that you really just don’t know. Also when your younger you don’t really see the value of life and you get easily attached to people who “are there for you”

    B. Advances in technology has changed and made websites like facebook and myspace more interesting by adding cute little smiley faces and hearts that talk and say cheesy lines and people like this kind of stuff, facebook and myspace also have a lot of new apps where you can play a game and talk with people you don’t even know!

    C. Yes I believe there is a line that shouldn’t be crossed when posting pictures and things said online. The line is you shouldn’t post pictures with your front or your back hanging out, you shouldn’t be bending over at all, and you shouldn’t be trying to show all your skin to everybody. You shouldn’t post anything on your status about going place, like for example “I’m going to Wal-mart in a little bit because I’m bored!”

    D. I think kids still put so much information online after being told about all the cyber predators because they don’t believe it could happen to anyone, they are young a stubborn and just don’t know what could happen until its too late!

    A). kids post this stuff on facebook is because they are just expressing there feelings and what they thing and being honest. that is why they put that stuff on their.

    B). it made it more interesting cause you can im now instead of just messaging people that takes for ever and there are better like wall paper i guess for myspace i guess.

    C). there is a line because people take pictures that are like ur butt hanging out and stuff and there are perverts and that’s when they make there move and try to get ur information and meet with you and kid nap or any thing else to you.

    D). i guess ts a message or just sayin whats on there mind and kids think they know how to stop it or not to reply but they dont it could be any body and they have to be careful or that some kids just dont care.

    A.)most people share so much information with strangers is because they think that it will help them become closer with that person..and also people add random people because they think that it will help them get more friends.

    b.)they made face-book more interesting because you can talk to all of your friends and also will let you look up old friends that you haven’t talked to in like years or so.

    C.)i think that there is a line on face-book that shouldn’t be crossed and that line is where people can go through your information without you knowing they are doing it or with out your permission.

    D.)people probably don’t really pay attention to what they put on there because they think that only their friends will be able to see it and they don’t think about all of the other old weird creeps out there…

    A) they do that because they think it is some one there age. But it could be a 50 to 60 year old man. Kids will tell any one there age of were they live.Cause they think that they can trust then,cause the predator say they can understand what teens are going through in there life. If it was me I would only talk to people I know on Facebook or other talking spaces.
    B)Because facebook is another way to talk to people. most of ever people in the world has a facebook. People like facebook Because facebook is more advance with there web site.
    C)I think people shouldn’t care what kids pictures look like. Or the way the wright. There shouldn’t be a line so it shouldn’t even madder what people put on myspace or facebook.
    D) I think they sill put there information so they can meat new people. most of the time most kids don’t know what the are writing most of the time.

    A) Because kids probably feel close enough to the person , so they share their information but they’re not thinking about the consequences that comes with sharing personal information.

    B) you can post pictures , listen to music , play games , you can get on the website with other devices also , not just your computer .

    C) yeah , you shouldn’t post pictures that shows tooo much skin ( that attracts unwanted attention , especially on a public site ) , Share personal information .

    D) because even though kids are warned soo many things about what could happen to them , they still believe that the strangers they are talking to are actually teens just like them , but they could be an old man .

    A.) I think that the kids these days give information to complete strangers is that the stranger may seem appealing to them.

    B.) The advance in capability and other website designs and customization advances make these sites more interesting. also the ability to share updates about how you feel at that point in time.

    C.) Yes, because some stuff like pictures and other things that you say or post online can be offensive and or attract predators.

    D.) I think that they don’t think about the dangers that could end up him mixing up with a stranger.

    A. i don’t know why people give out personal information to strangers at all. its very wrong to do so plus its common sense to not give it out to strangers. its a weird to do it plus very stupid

    B. they made it to where you can play games and chat on there. plus talk to people online no matter where they are. plus put things on your mind and share it to everyone you know or news you wanna share with the world. its very fun because i have a FB.

    C. yes the line is giving the place where you live away. inappropriate pictures, threatening remarks also known as bullying. and causing trouble between two people.

    D. yet again i don’t know why people do it. i guess its because they truly believe that they know the people they give it out too and trust them a lot. not thinking about the threat of how he might be a predator.

    A) They probably share so much information because they think that it is their friends or something. They also think that they can do anything they want just because they are teenagers.

    B) They have made befriending things and IMs so that people can get in touch. It was made to make strangers friends with other strangers.

    C) I say there is a line because people don’t need to know your address or phone numbers unless you personally know them. You pass that line when you meet someone online by giving them these personal things.

    D) They just think they can do whatever they want. For example, my sister added random people on Myspace and her computer got hacked.

    A ; Because Maybe They Longer They Talk The More The Person Gets Comfortable With That Person , And Starts To Think That They Can Just Share Information With Them , Or If The Stranger is Sharing Information With The Person , Then She/He Thanks To Their Self , Oh Maybe i Will Share Information With Him/Her Too !

    B ; They Made Facebook More Intersting Because You Can Get On And TAlk Tio Your Friends , And See What They Are Doing.

    C ; Because You Have A Picture Of You As Your Default Pictures , But Its Good That You Can Find People YOU Know , And People You DONT Know You Can Just Leave Them As They Are , On Myspace And Facebook , You Can Have A Protection To Where If The Person is 18 And Up Or 16 And Up , They Cant Add You Or You Cant Add Them , And You Can Keep Your Page Private , As In Chat Rooms You Can Just See That person Or You , And They Can Write You ANY Time They Please .

    D ; Because Even They We Are Warned Soooo Many Different Times , What Could Happen To Us From Being On Them Sites , We Still Believe That Strangers Are Teenagers Just Like Us. But In A Strange Way They Can Be And Old Man Or Maybe Even Women .

    A.) I think they would share their information that’s personal is because the person they would be talking to them would probably act like somebody they know so they tell them a few things. They would also say personal things so they could make friends that would act like the same age as they are but they really aren’t and they would be o all right and they would wanna hang out.

    B.) The things that made the Facebook and Mysapce is probably the chat and that you and your friends can talk and chill and other fun things like that. because if your friend moved away and you cant see them then you can add them as a friend on Facebook and you and your friend could chat and message eatch other all day.

    C.) I think there is a few lines wile being on facebook and Myspace with the profile pictures and comments that people say to one an other.

    D.) I think they would still put all their personal information even if there is cyber predators is because they would probably think that there are no predators that would be interested in teens and kids. or they would even do it for fun.

    A.) The reason kids share so much information with strangers online is because the strangers act the same age as the kids. These kids don’t know any better and they believe the strangers. The strangers know that they can get the info and take advantage of these children.

    B.) The new technology makes myspace and facebook better because you can do more things on it. You have different games that you can log onto. Back in the old days you couldn’t have pictures on party lines and chat rooms, just a name. Now you can have pictures and upload them.

    C.) The line that shouldn’t be crossed is that some how and some way grown- ups cannot message, comment, hack, or do anything to childrens facebook, or myspace, or any chatroom they might have.

    D.) Maybe the kids think that since everyone tells them about these predators that they will get deleted. But the predators don’t get deleted. They put so much information on there so thier friends can find them, or thier family members can find them. they think the predators are friends but they aren’t.

    A) People probably share their personal info to strangers because they think thats they are somebody that they aren’t. Since that person is sharing info with them then they think it’s okay to share personal info with them too.

    B) Technological Advances have made sites like Facebook and Myspace more interesting because now you can talk to anyone and plus the games on Facebook are more real than they used to be a long time ago.

    C) Yes. Things your doing later on and were you live should not be put on Facebook/Myspace because everyone looks at it. Pictures as well should not be put on there that are revealing.

    D) People only think that their friends and family can see them.

    Part A; I think that some kids are like “Well, I’ll never meet them anyways so what can it hurt?” So they just go on telling them or they think “Well they’re there and I’m here so…” I also think they share so much information because the ‘kid’ acts like there in the same age range and is going through the same thing so they feel safe.

    Part B; Facebook like there’s things you can do on it to communicate like I.M, poke, message stuff like that so I think kids are more drawn to those websites because maybe they even think there safer on facebook or Myspace….

    Part C; People shouldn’t give out personal information to people you don’t know and the pictures should only be shared with people you know.

    Part D; Because they feel safe with the person who there talking to. So they think “Oh this person couldn’t be one there to much like me.” Also I think maybe they think something like that couldn’t happen to them, but then it does.

    A.) I think they share so much because they think it’s safe.
    B.)the thing that makes Facebook and MySpace so interesting is the games. also the different things you can do.
    C.) there is a line that shouldn’t be crossed. no one should hack your Facebook or MySpace. you shouldn’t hack someone else’s either.
    D.)i think that they put it on there because they can and want to. some probably don’t care about the predator’s. they think it won’t happen to them.
    they put it on there so family and friends can find them.

    A) i think that kids post so much information online because they think only there friends are going to see it, or maybe because they want people to know whats going on with them, but some kids might no realize that if there profiles aren’t private that many strangers can see there post.

    B) the social websites have changed so much like face book has changed because it has updated the way people can talk and communicate with each other, and has made it were you can talk and play games and different stuff at the same time, like (IM) instant messaging.

    C) yes, i think there is a line that shouldn’t be crossed when it comes to posting things up on the web like you should never share your private information like your address or your phone number. you should also never post inappropriate pictures, that are to revealing or is not appropriate.

    D) i think that kids still put a lot of information online for everybody to see even though they have been told about the predators because some kids might no think that they have any predators on there friends, and sometimes they might not have any predators on there friends but there profile might not be private and the predators can get your information without you even knowing.

    A) i don’t really know why people post so much personal stuff on sites like Facebook or Myspace really i guess its because they might know all the people in real life but there could always be that one weirdo that stalks them i guess

    B) well not only do you get to chat with people like in chat rooms but you can post pictures play some mini games like Farming or some other stuff like that and you can personalize your page on myspace witch also makes it more appealing to kids

    C) Yes there is you shouldn’t post 1/2 naked pictures of yourself because there are creeps out there, there are child molelesters out there today and you may think your protected from them when you really not

    D) i think they just feel Protected from them by making their profile “privite” or something of that nature when there are ways around it you never know who you may add you never know any of that untill its done most the time but there is always a chance its a Creeper or stalker of some sort

    a) Maybe to just let their friend know that they really want to get to know them or maybe they trust the person they are talking to or maybe they just get so caught up in talking that they just ramble on and forget to think about what they are saying.
    b) As demand for better, faster, and convenience in technology we want for today, the people who are in charge of making the things we want have to make them to our better interest.

    A.) i think they share so much information cause they think they are actually friends with everybody on they page but they are not and they share there personal information to everybody when its world wide.

    B.) The new technology makes myspace and facebook better because you can do more things on it. You have different games that you can log onto. Back in the old days you couldn’t have pictures on party lines and chat rooms, just a name. Now you can have pictures and upload them.

    C.) yes there is when you have like a picture that you upload and that you shouldnt have and people like comment on it like sayin unapporiate things like cussing and etc..

    D.) because they be like thats not going to happen to me im way smarter then them and i am more and when it happens your going to feel dumb so when they think that they just put all there information up on the internet

    A) Because they want attention and want to make new friends and socialize with people they don’t know.

    B) Advances in technology have made Facebook and Myspace more interesting because people like getting on there and talking to their friends and instant messaging.

    C) Yes I do not think that people should be able to put inapropriate pictures of them self on the internet so anyone could see it.

    D) Because they think their profile is private and only their friends can see it but anyone can access to your stuff. And they don’t want to listen to anyone and do it anyway.

    A. I think they only share it because they probably figure if they tell strangers who will they possibly tell. Also they don’t know this person so they don’t know if their trust worthy or not so they trust them anyways. I also think they only do it to get their feelings out and they’ll just stop talking to that person as soon as they tell them their business

    B. It made things interesting you know information that you should know before actually talking to a person online.

    C. I think it becomes bad when it comes to pictures sometimes people put pictures/videos that sometimes other people could get offended.

    D.I think they just try to impress others or just have others feel bad for them. So they just do it for attention.

    C.

    A.) I think kids are sharing so much information with complete strangers online because i think they want all that attention and outside of the social networks they probably feel like their being ignored or they just like talking to anybody that they don’t even know and they might actually be talking to a stranger.

    B.) I think changes in advanced technology have made sites like myspace and facebook interesting nowadays because you can talk to anybody without being in a chatroom with a bunch of other people and you can have your own profile and put whatever you want on there.

    C.) Yes, i think there is a line that should not be crossed when it comes to pictures and things said online. I think people should not go beyond the limit with those things because when you go overboard with your pictures and things it attracts strangers and it stays on the internet permanently. I also think that the things you say have a limit. Just because you don’t see this person or you really don’t know that person doesn’t mean that you should just say things that are uncalled for to them or harass them through communication.

    D.) I think kids still put those things online on social networks and things because i guess they don’t really think that it could really happen to them, they don’t see the big danger or risk in it, or they think that it’s cool and they don’t believe that they could be a victim or just because they want everyone to see and they probably don’t care.

    A) some people might do it to really meet new people , Or maybe some people do it for attention from random stangers; for example i know this gir who makes fake stuff like facebook accounts and takes nasty pics and posts it on there just to get guys to say shes pretty its NASTY.

    B) they have made them more interesting by letting you interact with friends and family ; for example my family members live in places lik Missouri and Colorado ; so i never see them but they all know how i look and what ive been up to and thats only because of facebook.

    C) there is a line if your posting pictures of youself naked or in your bra and underwear or in boys case boxers , thats discusting , people dont want to see that stuff , and if they do they must be perves because thats werid ;

    D) Some kids post information because they dont think that stuff like that could happen to them ; they think that the danger level for everyone else has nothinq to do with them because stuff like stangers tracking you down , kidnapping you , or stalking you isnt something that could happen ;

    a} the reason why so many kids share information online is they think they can trust that person.to give a person exsperence i was talking to someone on facebook and they said they were from india next thing i know they have alot of friends from my school on there facebook so it looked a lil weird at that point. it was not who i thought it was so now i will not exsept no one that i do not no or i have never seen them before. but i would say not share nothing that u dont want people to no or say something to were a stranger can find u.

    b} well im on facebook everyday what made it so fun so were i like to be on there all the time is because i get to chat with friends and maybe upload pictures of us and friends. i talk to some of my family members on there its more fun then talkin on the phone and u can do stuff at the same time on there. i found family memebers on there that i have not seen or talked to in forever. thats y i love to use computers.and maybe u can get on all types of website it keeps u intertanded.

    c}yess i do thing there is a line i think think showin ur stomach is wow bad but i have to admit it does look trashy. but the time i think should not be crossed is the only in ya ur underwear and brawl..!!! u just dont do that i seen some girls with pictures like that i think that is flat out trashy. i dont think its bad to have ur bathingsuit on if ur like on a beach or a lake or in a pool is bad but u shouldnt be showin to much!
