Abstract

People communicate more and more online in various manners, from posting status up-
dates on Facebook, and sharing videos on YouTube, to direct chatting with friends while
playing games and making new (international) friends in online chatrooms. The online
society provides a million opportunities for those interested in engaging in harmless activ-
ities, but equally well it provides an environment for those with less honorable intentions.
Online identities are hard to link directly to physical identities and anonymity and privacy
are available to all, independent of the actual intentions of the person.
