From the texts, I learned that some of the potential dangers from blogging include harming others, opening the door for sexual predators, and harming your future. I think all of these concerns are legitimate because when you post things on the internet, EVERYONE can see what you have said; thus opening the door to arguments and things like that. Some dangers that were not mentioned in the articles include trolls (online bullies), pictures and text can be leaked and spread quickly. Students should keep in mind while they blog that what they say on the internet can be viewed by all, no matter the privacy settings they set on sites like Facebook. That doesn't stop people from copying and pasting what you've said to share it with the world. Some rules that I think would be appropriate for the class to follow would be to have the blogs monitored weekly if not more often, and to keep personal information (like names and places, etc.) off of the blogs.
