How to help your kids use social networking Web sites more safely

http://www.microsoft.com/protect/family/activities/social.mspx

"Kids use social networking sites to connect with kids who might live halfway around the world and with kids whom they pass every day in the hallways at school."

"Ensure your kids follow age limits on the site. The recommended age for signing up for social networking sites is usually 13 and over. If your children are under the recommended age for these sites, do not let them use the sites."

 

Kids + Social Networks = Learning (?)

http://weblogg-ed.com/2007/kids-social-networks-learning/

"Point is, we have to do more than unblock. We have to do more than just teach them what not to do. We have to help them leverage the tools.

So, what’s in your policy?" -- in context of schools
