How dangerous are networking sites?

A court in the US is preparing to hear the case of a woman accused of using MySpace to bully a 13-year-girl who later committed suicide. The case has prompted new concerns over the potential dangers of online social networking sites. Websites like Facebook, Bebo, Twitter and others have come to be seen as an essential part of life for millions of people. They enable users to share their lives with friends around the world, and get in touch with people with similar interests.
