The paper discusses how the 21st century form of communicating and social networking among teens has brought the Internet into the fore; Myspace, YouTube and Facebook are websites that allow teens (among others) to network. However, the paper asserts that there are multiple danges- ranging from cyberbullying to sexual predators and illegal use of "free speech" in making remarks that may not even be true about school, class mates, neighbors, etc.

From the Paper:

"Our grandparents had strictly supervised dances where the boys sat on one side of the gym, the girls on the other. Our parents had sleepovers and limos to the prom, and mash notes left in text books promising all sorts of sensuous delights (often fictional or merely wishful thinking). The 21st Century now has a form of social networking which is both titillating and, on occasion dangerous: the posting of pictures, biographical data (real or made-up) and the sometimes blatant offer for NSA (No strings attached) sex. The location: One's own computer and the websites of YouTube and Myspace and Facebook."
