When Web 2.0 was defined, it spoke to a new use of the web for more than just static pages that shared information. It was now a place where users could interact, and generate and share their own content. Somewhere in this development also came the birth of fake news where users created or obtained fast facts, and then retweeted, reshared, or liked it on a massive level, though what was 'published' wasn't actually true, but a deliberate spread of misinformation. Ripe with all kinds of dangers, our web world now insists that the average user is savvy to its pitfalls. This necessary volume helps teen separate fact from fiction, and understand what is so appealing and addictive about interactive programs like Facebook and Twitter. They'll be introduced to predecessors like MySpace, and learn through personal first-hand accounts why self-control, analysis, and caution is necessary when sharing your private life with the world.
