?Power users? are children who explore the cutting edge of new media and develop their competencies at a level where few adults can follow. Adults concerns over children?s and adolescents? activities on the Internet can often be ascribed to the fact that the children master the new media faster than their parents and their teachers. Adults who take the time to familiarise themselves with common practice on the Internet will usually abandon their concerns in favour of a more positive and supportive attitude.
