Dannah Boyd Interview

 This was an interesting discussion about social networking websites.  The times have definitely changed from the day where kids would go hang out in the neighborhood and play outdoors.  But, nowadays, students enjoy hanging out with each other online through social networking websites like myspace and facebook.  Students will emulate conversations they may often have in hallways through comment sections on the websites and send messages to one another when they want a conversation to remain private.  The fears that parents have about their kids going online should not cause them to lose sleep.  These websites have features where you can prevent any unwanted users from talking with your children.  Times are changing and so are the way students spend their time after school with their friends.
