Social Networking: Hazards and Opportunities

Publication: WAMU - The Kojo Nnamdi Show

02/17/2009 - Social networking sites like Facebook make it easier than ever to communicate with dozens, hundreds, even thousands of friends and loose acquaintances. But they also present a major challenge: deciding what information is appropriate for a mass audience, and which tidbits should stay out of cyberspace. WAMU's The Kojo Nnamdi Show examines the "do's and dont's" for online personas and explores why this issue confounds journalists, lawyers, lawmakers and parents.
