Which modern media interest you the most?
I am fascinated by networks like twitter and how fast information can be shared today and that everyone can participate on it. Other medias I use a lot are wikipedia wich can be espacially useful for students because you find everything you need about any topics and you don’t have to buy anymore expensive encyclopedias or dictionaries.

What is the biggest threat to online safety?
In my opinion it is the lack of knowledge of the users of the social networks. Most of people are not familiar with the privacy settings and show there personal information to every single user even if they would usually not share for example their address with a stranger. The consequence can be a birthday party with thousands of visitors or a burglary because you tell everyone when you go on holiday.
