No.. Ive been hearing stuff here & there, on the news, ect about social sites in general..
Bullying & being mean is just to rampant & easy on the internet.. Just like adults its easy to sit on CM & be rude to other moms--- but i bet they would never say that to each other 1 on 1 in person!!!
Kids are cruel in the way they can easily make up Facebook groups called "Derrik is fat" "Jannie is a Lezzie".... and classmates can join in on the laugh in just a simple click.. It hurts .. and at Jr high lvl their hormones are CRAZY so it hurts even more & can have devestating effects..
Its common for kids to get into small fights, but on the internet again, its just toooo easy to speak the mind in a way u would never outloud! and social sites make it between you & the rest of the world.. it doesnt stay within your groups of friends..
So im pretty against kids being social over the net.. email letters to friends are fine..
