If you are like most parents, you are probably not as comfortable with the social web as your children. In my Internet & Mobile Safety Workshops for Parents, I get more questions about Facebook than any other website. That shouldn’t come as much of a surprise since it is the largest social networking website by far and adoption of the site shows no sign of slowing down – especially with teens.
Larry Magid of ConnectSafely has published a fantastic video that explains Facebook privacy settings in details. Whether to help your children set up their privacy settings or for your own profile, it is well worth the watch.
