2. What are some negative aspects of social networking and social bookmarking?
3. How many of your friends have Facebook or MySpace accounts?
4. How many hours a day do you spend on Facebook or MySpace? Do you think it is too much? Too little? Why?
5. Do you ever use Facebook or MySpace when you should be studying? How does this effect you?
6. What are some dangers of using social networking websites?
7. What type of information should you share or not share on the Internet? Why?

Challenge:
We challenge you to make a short film about the positive and negative parts of social bookmarking or social networking. With a small group (three or four people), brainstorm the positive and negative elements of social networking or social bookmarking. Now develop a script that highlights the positive aspects of social bookmarking or social networking. Then make a script that highlights the negative aspects. Your total script should be about three minutes in length. After you have written a script, design a story board which includes all the major scenes that will be in your movie. Now you are ready to begin filming. When editing, make sure to include music, transitions, and titles.
