Own Your Space: Keep Yourself and Your Stuff Safe Online
The book for teens that every parent should read!
You have been immersed in the technology since preschool. You download music, Google your homework, and constantly IM your friends. You check your email before dinner, tweak your MySpace page, and bypass that hardcopy diary for your own 31337 space in the blogosphere. While you're doing that, you also need to protect yourself. This book is about keeping safe--protecting your data, your identity, and yourself without giving up all the great stuff the Net puts at your fingertips.
