Rozwój społeczeństwa informacyjnego prowadzi do odchodzenia od cywilizacji materialnej w kierunku cywilizacji niewidocznej, którą precyzyjnie powinno się nazywać cywilizacją informacyjną. Cywilizacja informacyjna stwarza ogromne szanse dla społeczeństwa i gospodarki. Realizacja przez Internet takich funkcji, jak: telepraca, tele-edukacja czy tele-informacja ma swoje określone skutki społeczne i gospodarcze. Cel artykułu: Celem opracowania jest zwrócenie uwagi na skutki społeczne szybkiego rozwoju społeczeństwa informacyjnego ze wskazaniem wybranych zagrożeń dla dzieci i młodzieży w cyberprzestrzeni. Metodologia: W opracowaniu wykorzystano metodę badawczą w postaci analizy literatury badanego zjawiska, wyników badań przeprowadzonych m.in. przez Fundację Dzieci Niczyje oraz danych Głównego Urzędu Statystycznego. Wnioski: Na zagrożenia w cyberprzestrzeni dla młodzieży należy spojrzeć szeroko uwzględniając zarówno dzieci i młodzież, jak i rodziców oraz nauczycieli.
