YouTube remains the No. 1 online video site, according to Nielsen Online. 24 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute (YouTube, 2010). Kids are supposed to be 13 years old to use YouTube. YouTube is a great place to showcase creativity. Use Safety Mode. At the bottom of every YouTube page, you can check a box that filters your search results. When Safety Mode is on, you’ll get fewer inappropriate results when you search for videos. ◦ How To TURN ON Safety Mode: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMAj5PMzvsk&feature= share&list=ECA6B961FA5F1D5FA5
A parent’s guide to Facebook by http://www.connectsafely.org/pdfs/fbparents. pdf Must be 13 to have an account Facebook provides extra account settings and protections for accounts of 13 to 17 year olds A July 2010 survey found that 37% of U.S. 10- to-12-year-olds were on Facebook, which means that every one of these children had to lie about their age to get on the service.
The best and most important thing you can do is know your FB settings!! ◦ Change them – by default most of these settings are wide open. ◦ You can keep others from tagging you in photos ◦ You can set notifications to know right away if anyone has tagged you ◦ You can set your default post and photos to a more private setting ◦ Use the custom lists/groups ◦ Rotate your photos – you don’t need all your photos available all the time ◦ Check the settings regularly!
