A Thin Line
In today's super-connected world it's sometimes easy to forget that things we share with friends may be broadcast to the entire world. With this in mind, MTV has designed a website with tips, games and stories to help you "identify, respond to, and stop the spread of digital abuse in your life and amongst your peers." Check it out at http://www.athinline.org. Be sure to take the quiz and find out how web saavy you are.
