The growing popularity of web 2.0, particularly social networking tools, among young people makes it attractive for pedagogical use. Successful realization of web 2.0-based learning requires thorough understanding of the potential barriers influencing acceptance of web 2.0 by current and future students. This article presents the findings of a broader research into the use of web 2.0 by the digital generation, young people at the age of entering HE and current students. In conclusion, the article argues for the urgent need to educate current and future web 2.0 users about the relevant issues of privacy and information security.
