Today, one of the most effective and efficient ways to communicate is over the
Internet. The internet allows us to connect with a wide range of individuals and read news and information from across the world, whether through Facebook, Myspace, Yahoo, or another website.
While the Internet has many positive aspects and can be quite beneficial, it can also be a source of danger. Teens use the internet on a daily basis, yet the majority are unaware of the risks. According to statistics, 10% of kids have had private chats with internet strangers via instant messaging on a regular basis, and 4% of teens have discussed meeting in person with a cyber-stranger.
