Parents play an important role in their children's safety online — especially when it comes to social networking.
A lot has been written in the last couple of days about the Consumer Reports study on Facebook (Facebook is an NCSA Board Member company) users use of privacy settings.
Today's generation of children can sync digital devices to computers and troubleshoot problems with the click of a mouse. But they may not be able to handle the overwhelming situations online and problems that arise from making uninformed decisions.
Facebook, an NCSA board member company, is awarding $200,000 in grant money as part of a safety program to encourage digital citizenship, prevent suicide and cyber bullying and learn how social media can impact the next generation of youth.
Kids, don't be surprised if your grandparents send you an email or post a message on your Facebook wall the next time your birthday rolls around.
