Hazards of Social Networking

I watched an interesting documentary called "Catfish" by Filmmakers Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. This film speaks to the potential hazards of social networking and reminds us parents to keep an eye on who our children are "friending" online. I think this film also reminds us to value our own online privacy and to reflect on the difference between a face to face relationship and one conducted through the technologies of the Internet, text messaging, and email.
