FYS RESEARCH PAPER!! by csonderman

My paper is coming along well.

November 9, 2009, 4:04 pm - [1]

I have started to do some research and write the paper.

November 9, 2009, 4:05 pm - [2]

My topic is how some people may have a sense of security while on the internet, but in reality it can be quite dangerous.

November 9, 2009, 4:32 pm - [3]

I will include how chatrooms, facebook, mypsace, and youtube can be dangerous for children.

November 9, 2009, 4:33 pm - [4]

People with false identies are lurking online and everyone must be aware.

November 9, 2009, 4:34 pm - [5]

I will include the show to catch a predator.

November 9, 2009, 4:34 pm - [6]

Majority if not all of the men on this program used the internet to seduce their victim.

November 9, 2009, 4:35 pm - [7]

Adults are't the other ones who can hurt children but children can hurt eachother.

November 9, 2009, 4:36 pm - [8]

Bullying via facebook and myspace is very popular.

November 9, 2009, 4:36 pm - [9]

Children can also post videos that portray classmates or freinds in negative ways on youtube or in vidoes.

November 9, 2009, 4:37 pm - [10]

There are fights posted on youtube or just children ranting on about how they hate someones clothes or just the person in general.

November 9, 2009, 4:38 pm - [11]

I plan on interviewing groups of children.

November 9, 2009, 4:38 pm - [12]

I want to personally ask them about these fights or negative portrayals.

November 9, 2009, 4:39 pm - [13]

I plan to ask if they are the victim or maybe they have been the bullies.

November 9, 2009, 4:39 pm - [14]

I am also curious to see how experience children are with being online.

November 9, 2009, 4:39 pm - [15]

For example I have already interviewed my cousin Lilian who is kindergaten.

November 9, 2009, 4:40 pm - [16]

She is able to get onto the computer by herself.

November 9, 2009, 4:41 pm - [17]

Although she isn't searching the web but she knows how to get on online video games by herself.

November 9, 2009, 4:41 pm - [18]

I compare her with my mom who doesn't even know how to turn on the computer.

November 9, 2009, 4:42 pm - [19]

I would also like to include ways to make sure people staying safe online.

November 9, 2009, 4:43 pm - [20]

For example not giving out personal information to strangers.

November 9, 2009, 4:43 pm - [21]

I would also like to warn children to be aware of the choices they make.

November 9, 2009, 4:43 pm - [22]

They need to realize that there is always someone watching.

November 9, 2009, 4:44 pm - [23]

And who knows if that person has a video camera.

November 9, 2009, 4:44 pm - [24]

Honestly these days almost all cell phones have cameras on their cell phones.

November 9, 2009, 4:45 pm - [25]

And younger and younger kids keep getting cellphones.

November 9, 2009, 4:45 pm - [26]

I also plan on saying my personal experiences with the internet.

November 9, 2009, 4:45 pm - [27]

Me and my freind have been in a chatroom before and it is insane.

November 9, 2009, 4:46 pm - [28]

There are 12 old girls talking about how they have there web cams hooked up and say they have "something" to share.

November 9, 2009, 4:46 pm - [29]

There are tons of children just willing to expose themselves.

November 9, 2009, 4:47 pm - [30]

And i doubt any of their parents have a clue.

November 9, 2009, 4:47 pm - [31]

It is really quite shocking.

November 9, 2009, 4:48 pm - [32]

Then on facebook and myspace you have little girls trying to look sexy in there pictures.

November 9, 2009, 4:48 pm - [33]

I never really knew and eighth grader could be sexy.

November 9, 2009, 4:48 pm - [34]

These children need to be aware that these pictures can easily be leaked out.

November 9, 2009, 4:49 pm - [35]

Not only that but they can become an easy target.

November 9, 2009, 4:49 pm - [36]

The reason these girls are doing these things are attention.

November 9, 2009, 4:50 pm - [37]

And online predators are more than willing to give these girls some attention.

November 9, 2009, 4:50 pm - [38]

I was just online and all you need to do is type in fights and many appear.

November 9, 2009, 4:56 pm - [39]

I was even able to fine a webisite called IHATEMATT.COM

November 9, 2009, 4:57 pm - [40]

I think the website was a joke but it could have just as easily been a website portraying someone in a negaitive way.

November 9, 2009, 4:57 pm - [41]

The internet can be a dangerous place.

November 9, 2009, 4:58 pm - [42]

I hope I am able to show the dangers and negative aspects of the internet so people will be more aware.

November 9, 2009, 4:58 pm - [43]

And maybe someday the internet will be completely void or predators and negative portrayals.
