  1. Yeah, it really shows how various age groups have different “unset rules” or social norms about how to post online. This article also explores the ideas of an online identity and the pressure to follow social norms in order to appear a certain way (i.e. do not appear “too sexy”).

  2. Yes, this is a great response to the kind of moral panics that all to often accompany any discussion of children and “new” media. As this article demonstrates, young people have always been incredibly adept at navigating new media forms and developing their own norms and codes for engagement.
