    • 1. From and to : growing up digital : and Sacha Chua
    • 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.

    • 10. I keep in touch with 305 friends through Facebook . By the time you see this, there will be more. updates - stories - events – photos – cool videos - favorite websites - even relationships We hang out. We keep in touch.
    • 11.  
    • 12. This is a good thing.
    • 13. It can also be a bad thing.
    • 14. “ Children under 13 years old are not permitted access to Facebook.” Why not?
    • 15. Stay out of trouble.
      • You don’t have to be friends with everyone who asks you.
      • Think before giving out your information.
      • Think before sharing your secrets.
      • Think before meeting up with people.
    • 16. Change your privacy settings so that only your friends can find you.
    • 17. Think ahead.
      • The Internet remembers.
      • When you’re applying for your dream job , do you want your boss to see that photo you took on a dare ?
    • 18. Stand up for yourself.
      • Don’t tolerate cyberbullying.
      • Block annoying people.
      • Talk to someone you can trust.
    • 19. This is not easy. Even grownups get it wrong.
      • Stay out of trouble.
      • Think ahead.
      • Stand up for yourself.
      Facebook, Myspace, and other sites are still good ways to make friends, hang out, and keep in touch. Just THINK .
