The world of blogging is upon us. The “blogosphere” is doubling every 5 months, a new one being created every second of every day. It appears that everyone has something to say, which is good to know! Teenagers represent the fastest growing group of bloggers, the likes of myspace and facebook having captured their imagination. If you’ve been to these sites you’ll know that a large portion of the conversations that go on are about parties, sex and a mix of activities that any self respecting teenager should be getting up to, but that they would rather their parents didn’t know about. Unfortunately for them, their parents are the least of their worries. Companies frequently use Google searches to gain background information on perspective employees. This means that every misdemeanour that is written about is cached catalogued tagged and stored. This means that what children are writing about now could come back to haunt them.
