Yesterday I chaired a session on Digital Natives as part of the [BBC’s Developing Talent conference ](http://ukjournalism.co.uk/thehotpot/?cat=70)hosted by UCLan. We pulled in two of our second years, [Joe Stashko](http://josephstashko.com/) and [Daniel Bentley](http://danielbentley.me/), who we think are digital natives(even if they don’t!) to talk to the audience about how they do what they do and my colleague Paul Egglestone gave his perspective from a community and digital immigrant perspective.
They did a great job and some interesting points came out of the too-and-fro. As ‘chair’ I made some notes that may or may not define a digital native based on the panelists views and the audience questions.
A digital native:
Buys in to the implied funding model. You pay to use this service with your information. Right or wrong.
Understands and is part of the social graph
Over-shares but doesn’t over promote (themselves)
Will over-share your content – whether you want them to or not!
Will give stuff away for free as long as you come and get it
Doesn’t read terms and conditions but then who does!
Won’t sign up for a BBC ID (as it doesn’t play well with Facebook)
