  • Most friends aren’t “real” friends. There is a lot of pressure to accept any connection request. The conversations you have are also very surface level.
  • The Home Page is where everybody goes when they visit Facebook. It contains the latest news stories about your friends, highlights of the most important stories, upcoming events, requests and pokes, and suggestions for new friends.
  • The profile is like what you wear – it is an identity, and all the parts and the information you share goes with that identity.
  • The Internet is your Permanent Record

Contact us at info@thoughtlabs.com
    20. 20. Defaults for Search <ul><li>You can hide yourself completely from search both on and off Facebook. </li></ul>Copyright @2009 Thought Labs, LLC. Contact us at info@thoughtlabs.com
    21. 21. Defaults for the News Feed <ul><li>You control how far your actions travel when you interact on Facebook. </li></ul>Copyright @2009 Thought Labs, LLC. Contact us at info@thoughtlabs.com
    22. 22. Information Lives Forever <ul><li>Using the privacy settings, you control who can see the content you post. </li></ul><ul><li>Facebook also allows you to delete your content and it should automatically get removed from all over the site. </li></ul><ul><li>However, there is nothing to prevent anyone who has access to that content from copying it and reposting it on or off Facebook, or emailing it around. </li></ul><ul><li>In general, if you publish it anywhere, </li></ul><ul><li>it is public . </li></ul>Copyright @2009 Thought Labs, LLC. Contact us at info@thoughtlabs.com
    23. 23. Online Etiquette <ul><li>Unlike a lot of the Internet, Facebook isn’t anonymous, so all of your actions are associated with you. It is your reputation you are managing. </li></ul><ul><li>Since all your friends are on there, what you say and do is likely to be known to everyone. Be careful about what you say – it is hard to take it back. </li></ul><ul><li>Excluding people is harder online. You can have private events, but they might see the pictures later. </li></ul><ul><li>Request that offensive or hurtful content be removed by the owner or report it. There are ways to do this anonymously. There is no reason to allow yourself to be bullied or humiliated. </li></ul><ul><li>What goes around comes around, so be sure to hold yourself to the standards you want others to use for you. </li></ul>Copyright @2009 Thought Labs, LLC.

    24. 24. Parent/Teen relationships <ul><li>Set some rules up front – how much time, acceptable content, profile checks, posting on each other’s profiles, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Beware of TMI – Too Much Information. Do you really want to know what they are thinking and doing? </li></ul><ul><li>Parents and teens can be friends, but don’t have to be. The Limited friend list can help. </li></ul>“ Going on to Facebook and checking out your children's profile is really not much different than going into your kid's room or looking through your kid's things.“ - Jenifer Lippincott Copyright @2009 Thought Labs, LLC. Contact us at info@thoughtlabs.com
    25. 25. Don’t Mess With The Law <ul><li>Facebook complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) by not allowing children under 13 to have accounts. Anyone under 13 is violating the Facebook Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. </li></ul><ul><li>Posting illegal content or videos or photos of crimes can get you arrested. There are many documented cases of this. Don’t incriminate yourself. </li></ul><ul><li>Harassing or bullying people online has the same repercussions as doing it face to face, except there is a written record. </li></ul><ul><li>While not illegal, posting inappropriate content can still get you in trouble; not only at school, but also with universities, future employers, etc. Use good judgment and good privacy settings. </li></ul>Copyright @2009 Thought Labs, LLC.
