Facebook Fears: Protecting your children when they use social networking
Facebook is Born
Why are so many students fascinated with Facebook?
Sign up for Facebook yourself and befriend your child.
Become familiar with Facebook and its safety features
Monitor what your child is posting on his/her page.
Think before you post.
Have your children ask themselves Would I want my dad to see this? My teacher or professor? My future boss? If the answer is no, then don’t post it.
Don’t post mean comments or jokes on your friends’ profiles if you don’t want them to do the same to you.
Make sure your children set their privacy settings so that only their friends can see what they post. Also make sure they only accept people they know as their friends.
Always report harassment, bullying, or inappropriate comments to an adult.
Tell your children to “trust their gut.” If something that someone says or posts online does not feel right, then make sure your child reports it using the “Report” link, or tells you so you can report it.
