Also, I would like to remind people of a movie that came out in 2005 called “Cry Wolf.” If you do not already know, the movie is about a group of teens that spread rumors online about a killer, making up his victims and what he did to them. However the killer began to copy what they were doing online, which made for a mediocre horror movie. This is perhaps a bizarre example, but it also shows how something can spread quickly. Today in class we were warned about what we should put on our facebook and MySpace pages. We really need to be careful with things like that because although we may mean pages like these to be viewed by our friends and fellow students, we never really know what kind of “predators” are looking at them also.
