Pew Study: The web is redifining our reputations, relationships
This is a really interesting article about how we present ourselves online. I especially liked the comment left after the article
"The idea of a digital footprint for many students and parents is still abstract. We, schools, need to do a much better job at providing students with the skills and opportunities to be good digital citizens. Part of the issues we see now are due in part to the age of many students. I call it the invincibility factor. The other part is that lack of realism by parents that what goes on the web... stays on the web...forever. "
