72% use sites to socialize with their real-life friends. Few teens report (or admit to) using the sites to directly engage those they are romantically interested in. Only a modest number (17%) of social-networking teens say they use the sites to flirt. It’s mostly about real life Source: Pew Internet & American Life survey January 2007

Strong rules but enforced only after complaints. MyYearbook : High school-oriented digital yearbook plus usual social networking features. Bebo : Social networking and media-sharing. Among top 3 in UK. Hi5 : 80% of users outside U.S. - multiple languages

Other sites & services Twitter & Plurk: Micro-blogging - 140 characters or less. Kind of like blended chat & IM. Twitter mostly adults, Plurk a little younger. JuicyCampus : Gossip site, total anonymity, no rules. Stickam : Social video-streaming site with live webcam chat. Ning: Allows users to create their own social networks, or mini-MySpaces. Second Life & other virtual worlds : Users create avatars that interact in a virtual world.

Teens are alive today, thanks to social-networking sites…

Question: What proportion of teens have been approached online by a predator? 1 in 20 1 in 10 1 in 7 1 In 5 Almost half

1 in 20

1 in 10

1 in 7

1 In 5

Almost half

It’s a trick question

The report said,“one in seven youth received an unwanted sexual solicitation” 1 ) These solicitations did not necessarily come from “online predators ”. When they believed they knew, they said about half were other youth. 2) These solicitations were not necessarily devious or intended to lure. Most were limited to brief online comments or questions in chatrooms or instant messages. Many were simply rude, vulgar comments like, “What’s your bra size?”. 3) Most recipients did not view the solicitations as serious or threatening . Two‐thirds were not frightened or upset by what happened. 4) Almost all youth handled unwanted solicitations easily and effectively. Most reacted by blocking or ignoring solicitors, leaving sites, or telling solicitors to stop December 2007

Question Do you agree that the growth in young people’s use of the Internet correlates with a rise in sexual abuse against children?

Answer *Source: Nat’l Child Abuse & Neglect Data System -- Finkelhor & Jones, 2006) 51% decline from 1990 to 2004 Rate per 10,000 Children (<18)

Is posting necessarily dangerous? &quot;Sending and posting personal information online may not increase one's risk for Internet victimization as much as meeting people online in lots of different ways, talking about sex with people known only online, and harassing others (i.e., making rude or mean comments, intentionally embarrassing or harassing others) online&quot; --Michele Ybarra February 2008 issue of Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine .

--Michele Ybarra February 2008 issue of Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine .

What causes risk? Aggressive behavior in the form of making rude or nasty comments increased the odds of being victimized 2.3 times Frequently embarrassing others increased the risk almost 5 times Meeting people in multiple ways increased the odds 3.4 times Talking about sex online with strangers doubled the risk --Michele Ybarra February issue of Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine .

Deception rarely involved Most teens are aware of the approximate age and intentions of the adults who contact them. Only 5% of offenders pretend to be teens. In some cases, the kids are being aggressive and sexually suggestive and pose in ways to make themselves look older than they are. --Janis Wolak, University of New Hampshire’s Crimes Against Children Research Center (paraphrase, not exact quote)

A single approach doesn’t work A small % of teens get into trouble online Roughly the same % of teens get into trouble offline -probably the same teens Internet safety education messages need to be tailored to audience. One-size-fits-all messages don’t work.
