What is significant?
I belive a person's online presence/persona will only rise in signifigance proportional to the realization of the internet as a massive, intertwined sociological/technological medium.
Quickly said, what you say and do will follow you from online to offline and back again.
Study shows fear of MySpace predators is overblown
Some of the findings are:
* Only 7% of those teens interviewed were ever approached by anyone with a sexual intent and nearly all of them simply ignored the person and blocked him from their page.
* Two-thirds of the parents were sure that there were many sexual predators on MySpace, while only one-third of the teenagers shared this concern.
