Are blogs unsafe for teens?
Were good old-fashioned web-pages unsafe for teens?
Well, there's lots of evidence to show that they were, in some cases, as in the high profile Sam Manzie murder case in New Jersey, and in the murder of the 13 yr old girl by a 26 yr old in Connectcut.
But "blog" is a buzzword. Regardless of the fact that blogs are alot like old-fashioned personal websites that took longer, and a little more knowledge, to build than the average blog.
They're no more of a threat to identity than personal websites...and won't necessarily attract more stalkers than personal websites.
Although they might inflate adolescent egos just a bit more and ratchet up the insufferability factor in most households. Perhaps that's what parents are really concerned about.
