As the internet continues to grow in popularity, we are depending upon it at an increasing rate to conduct everyday life, which also includes the sharing of private and at times very sensitive information about ourselves with others online knowingly, and at times unknowingly. Many who are now online use the internet for communication, education, entertainment, research, business, socializing, and commerce. There is no doubt that the internet and social media have facilitated important positive connections and amazing accomplishments amongst students and educators.  It is a reality, however, that the internet (just like away from keyboard) has also created an online virtual environment where thieves, vandals, con artists, and in rare cases sexual predators, existing.
