What is a 'wiki'?
A wiki is a server program that allows users to collaborate in forming the content of a Web site. With a wiki, any user can edit the site content, including other users' contributions, using a regular Web browser. Basically, a wiki Web site operates on a principle of collaborative trust. The term comes from the word "wikiwiki," which means "fast" in the Hawaiian language.
A wiki allows a visitor to the "wikified" Web site to edit the content of the site from their own computer. Visitors can also create new content and change the organization of existing content. The simplest wiki programs allow editing of text and hyperlinks only. More advanced wikis make it possible to add or change images, tables, and certain interactive components such as games.

A wiki provides a simplified interface. At any time, contributors can conveniently view the Web page as it looks to other subscribers, before and after the changes they have made. It is not necessary to know HTML (hypertext markup language) or perform work in HTML code. The best known example of a wiki Web site is Wikipedia, an online dictionary building collaboration.

Responsible Use of the World Wide Web
“An astounding 16 million people have their own pages on MySpace. MySpace.com is also a playground for creeps and perverts.” People Magazine

What a wonderful invention the world wide web is! And MySpace, how neat! All these other social sites, what fun! MySpace e.g. owes it popularity to the fact that you can chat, upload photos and videos and include information on yourself.
HOWEVER CRIMES AS SERIOUS AS RAPE AND MURDER HAVE BEEN LINKED TO TEENS USING THE SITE, WHICH HAS BECOME A PREFERRED VENUE FOR CYBER-BULLIES AND ONLINE PEDOPHILES.
Get a grip ladies. It is foolhardy to put up personal and intimate details of you and your families lives for the whole world to see.
