    Fears about the potential risks of the Internet, especially for children, have been long held within society. However, the advent and rapid uptake of websites such as MySpace (http://www.myspace.com) and Facebook (http:// www.facebook.com) have added to these fears (Pascu, Osimo, Ulbrich, Turlea, & Burgelman, 2007). ›e fact that the Internet is lawless is now widely acknowledged (Broadhurst, 2006, p. 11).
