Online child safety and literacy

This presentation pulls together Pew Internet Project research about teenagers’ online activities, their behavior on social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace, and their Web 2.0 content creation activities. It covers the threats posed by cyberbullying, and stranger contact on the internet. and suggests that a new kind of competence we call “self literacy” is useful in the digital age.
