I attended the screening of the Fresno Public Library Sunnyside Teen Council video documentary entitled “MySpace Generation” last night. Following the screening of the 8 minute documentary, which can be viewed at YouTube, questions from the audience were asked of the panel. The panel consisted of two teens, a public youth services librarian, and myself. The teens were articulate, honest, and concerned about online safety. Questions from the audience lead to discussions about online safety (keep your profile private), how MySpace continues to monitor the site and will delete inappropiate profiles, and the “Deleting Online Predators Act” which did not pass in Congress which would have required all public libraries and school districts to block social networking websites. Overall, it was an outstanding evening and should be modeled throughout the U.S. The teens who were part of the panel and those who helped create the documentary, which was a four-month process did an outstanding job!
