Not so long ago, the digital world was the province of adults, business, and the world of work. Today, there is a very definite teen cyberculture, developed by kids who are growing up online. This digital world provides a private space, where kids communicate with their friends, do schoolwork, and also face the dangers posed by predators and cyberbullies. The Internet is forging a society with fundamentally different properties, leaving parents grapple with the question of how to manage kids interactions with a world where the partition between public and private has effectively disappeared.
