Don't Fear Online Communities

Nancy White guest blogs at cybersoc.com and writes about online group interaction:
"There was and continues to be some level of fear and even fear mongering around online groups, particularly those for teens. MySpace has repeatedly come under attack as a dark and dangerous place for teens. My older teen children use MySpace, FaceBook and other tools and I have to say, the fear mongering for me is a continued reflection of the US environment where fear is a political tactic. My message to parents: stay involved with and talk to your kids. These online spaces are part of their reality."
