TEENS AND ONLINE SOCIAL NETWORKING
Friendships are important to teens and new technology avenues provide many opportunities to network with friends. Social networking sites may be a great way for teens to communicate, but there are both positive and negative consequences that teens and their parents should remember. Here are some tips to help teens socialize safely online. Assume everyone has access to your profile. Set your profile to “private” to control who has access to your information. Never post your or a friend’s private home or work address or phone numbers because putting it online is like giving it to the whole world. Remember, once you post something online, you can’t take it back. Even if you delete the information, it may still be available. There may well be people who will use your information to cause you harm or to try to find you. Don’t add anyone as a friend unless you know them personally. More information on safe social networking may be found at www.webwisekids.org.
