MySpace Tragedy

To say today's report on the death of Megan Meier is tough is an understatement. She's the 13 year old Missouri girl who committed suicide after being harrassed on MySpace. The worst part of the story: the cyber-stalker's profile was a creation of the parent of another teenager. We were shocked when we heard about this story, but we realized it is an important one to tell. It highlights the importance of keeping personal information close to the vest when you go online. Not everyone is what they appear to be. An important lesson to learn. We hope our discussion questions will help your class talk about the story, and help put it in the context it deserves. Let us know how the discussion went in your class.
