Kids, Privacy, and the Internet

Check out this really good piece that's basically about theinternet age gap. (Via Arts and Letters Daily)

One point is hinted at, but not fully examined in the piece- the fact that even twenty-somethings (a group to which I belong) does not have the internet way of life hard wired into our social structure the way that teenagers today do. My generation has options when it comes to theinternet. Not everyone has MySpace or FaceBook pages - some people don't even use the internet all that much. But for teenagers today, I get the sense that the lack of privacy the article discusses is an expected aspect of youth culture today.
