Social networking is wonderful yet staggering. In a short space of time user populations greater than the populations of nation states have joined social networks. One social networking website and one related website each report amassing over 1 billion regular users.

Yet, the legal and other issues involved with social networking and related websites are getting as many media headlines as the technologies themselves. Some of these are similar to established legal issues, however, with increasing frequency, the issues are entirely new.

In addition, the scale of the issues are at a level unprecedented in collective memory.

If that was not enough, the pace of the legal and other issues which must be considered, and more importantly the pace and urgency with which they must be dealt with, add significant temporal pressures.

It is timely and appropriate for a legal book which seeks to outline the new law and issues relating to social networking.

It also sets these developments in the context of social networking but also related websites and the wider developments of Web 2.0 second generation internet.

The growing law and issues of, and created by, social networking and related websites involve real and diverse concerns for policy. The concerns face the website operators, users, parents, schools, universities, employers, organisations, outsource organisations, the police, lawyers, courts, rights organisations and policymakers.
