Potential dangers that exists in blogging are the following: cyber bullying that lead to suicide, giving out personal information, and removing the barrier between older men and younger teenagers.  All of these issues are legitiment because they all could potentially affend someone or even hurt them.  People put out there personal information all the time to people they don't even no exist.  It could be a huge danger to underaged teenagers who come across adults who try to message and harass them. Other dangers that are not discussed is the exposure of young girls who put inappropriate pictures up on websites like facebook or myspace.  Some rules we should use when we blog are: pay attention to everything you may put in the blog, put appropriate information on the blog, and don't right anything offensive in your blog because what message are you trying to send to people you don't know?
