My name is Chris Webster. I am in my final year of a Bachelor of Information Technology at the University of Technology, Sydney. For the last three years I have been promoting an awareness of cyber bullying and general internet safety through my work with this website,, and by conducting workshops with parents, teachers and students around Australia.

I intend to produce a series of guides enabling teenagers like you to understand how to choose the most appropriate settings on the most popular social networking sites, MySpace and Facebook, so that only the people you want to see your personal information can.

Your answers to this survey will help to tailor the production of the guides to the most important areas. Please try to answer each question, as best you can from memory, unless the question tells you to look at your Facebook profile to determine the answer to a question (in which case, please do go check your Facebook profile!)

If you'd like to receive the results of this survey when it is completed (late 2008), please send an email to

Thanks for taking the time to complete this survey.

Thanks for your interest! These surveys have now been closed. Preliminary results have been released to those who have requested them.
I intend to publish the complete report in the first quarter of 2009.
