Stuck for ideas?
-Try looking up cyber bullying or crime (the New Zealand Herald website has heaps of articles)
-Here's some interesting statistics about Facebook.
-How would you feel if your potential employer in 10 years time could see the photos you posted up on the internet now? Can you put too much information out about yourself?
-Isn't it easy and pretty instant to access any information you want on the internet? Is all that information correct - can't anyone post info up? What if children access inappropriate material?
-Think about what the internet is used for - social networking, file sharing, an information database, entertainment, work, etc. Has the internet changed how we do things in a positive or negative way?
