A Parents Guide to Facebook

Getnetwise is an excellent resource for parents who are committed to raise discerning children in a digital age.  Discernment in a digital age will begin with knowledge.  Without knowledge (knowing facts) you cannot teach your children to be understanding. 

While getnetwise is a secular resource.  It is very informative.  Here is an example of one of the many helpful articles at getnetwise.org. 

ConnectSafely.org, in partnership with the iKeepSafe Coalition, has announced their new publication (Nov), A Parent’s Guide to Facebook. This new resource for “parents, educators, and everybody looking for the basics on the world’s most popular social networking site – what it is, why young people use it, how to turn it into a great parenting tool, and how to optimize its privacy settings for teens.” The guide is available for download in PDF format and features “hands-on, step-by-step instructions and illustrations, as well as parenting points on safety, privacy, and reputation protection. It covers both cellphone- and computer-based use of Facebook and the site’s newest features, including Places, Groups, and the latest privacy updates.” ConnectSafely.org and iKeepSafe are both partners of the GetNetWise initiative.
