We still search for social connections and validation.
Youth are still exploring and experimenting with risky behavior.

What are the benefits of online identity in your context?
What are the drawbacks?
Case Study Context: Seniors
New research from AARP finds that social networking is more important than ever to older Americans—more than a quarter (27%) of Americans age 50+ use social media websites, with Facebook being the most popular, followed by MySpace, LinkedIn and Twitter.
71.1% of 55 to 64 year olds in Canada use the Internet
40.7% of 65 year olds in Canada use the Internet
Case Study Context: Job Seekers
“ 1 in 4 employed adults says their company has policies about how they present themselves online”.
“ Just over 1 in 10 (~12%) employed internet users are public personae who say they need to market themselves online as part of their job.”
“ The majority of adults do not want internet marketers to tailor advertising to their interests, particularly when that involves online data collection and monitoring.”
Pew Internet Research Report, 2010
The German government has proposed legislation to restrict the Internet content employers can use when recruiting.
Case Study Context: Teens
55% of 18-34 year olds have a personal profile on at least one online social network
39% of youth have posted something on their social networking pages that they regret
1/3 of YAs on social networking sites still don’t use privacy controls on their profiles
15% of YAs report that they've had private material (IMs, texts, emails) forwarded without permission
