It also advises kids how to choose strong passwords and to avoid downloading programs without permission. Safekids.com http://www.safekids.com Magid writes, “In this Web 2.0 world, kids aren’t just consuming media, they’re creating it and they have collectively embraced social media as a part of their lives. They don’t go online; they are online–whether on a PC, a mobile device, a gaming console, or whatever comes next.” Magid points out that the biggest threats to kids online come from themselves, when they disclose too much information, and their peers, who may bully them. Advice for Kid Safety Technology Is A Mirror : “The thing about this digital age is that it's holding up a very big, society-wide mirror to our faces nearly 24/7,” writes Anne Collier on her NetFamily News blog [http://www.netfamilynews.org/2010/04/citizenship-social-web-mirror-in-our.html]. In other words, technology is never the problem, it simply shows us our problems, which are really behavioral and interpersonal. Technology Is A Mirror Technology Is A Mirror : “The central task of citizenship is learning how to be good to one another," writes Collier. “Let's do ourselves and our children a favor and not make it one bit more complicated than that.” Technology Is A Mirror Questions? : Questions?
