  • 2. How do you make friends ? How do you hang out ? How do you stay in touch ? More and more people are doing all of that online.
  • 3. Other people don’t get it.
    • Your parents didn’t grow up with Facebook.
    • Your teachers might not know about Myspace.
    • This is brand new territory.
    • If you want to be in it, you’ll need to keep yourself safe , and you’ll need to help other people understand .
  • 4. A bit of perspective:
    • The Internet started out as a way for researchers to connect in case the world went kaboom. (~40 years ago)
    • Then companies joined. Most websites were like brochures. (~ 15 years ago)
    • Search got much better. E-commerce became popular. (~ 10 years ago)
    • Now it’s about people connecting with each other and sharing what they made. (~ 3 years ago)
    And things are changing even faster now.
  • 5. Remember the first day of school? It’s different now. You can make friends even before you go on campus.
  • 6. You can keep in touch with lots of people. Find out how they’re doing. What they’re feeling. Who they’re seeing (or not seeing). What they’re thinking. Where they’re going.
