32 The best course of action is education and communication – educate students as to safe practices on the Internet, educate teachers and parents as to the potential dangers, and encourage parents to communicate with and monitor their childrens online social networking activities.. Bottom Line

33 Social Media Best Practices for Parents

34 Social Media & Youth Reality No one size fits all solutions Social Media is embedded in kids day to day experiences Off line has merged with online Develop mutually agreed upon ground rules, best practices Create a tool box; leverage you childs tech expertise Establish parental controls on , networking sites and mobile devices New tools require new rules Keep an eye on childs social networking activities

35 Children Social Media Best Practices Listen to your child A mobile phone is a lifeline for teens and a communication tool for parents Define appropriate age for a social networking presence Explain to your child the value of privacy (nothing on social media is private) Create a social networking and mobile device contract Know the social networking policies of your school and your childs friends

36 Children Social Media Best Practices Set boundaries: supervise time and duration Control social networking accounts and passwords Set security settings and review them frequently Keep laptop/computer/ in family room with monitor facing out dont let kids go to bed with cell-smart phone Limit friends to those they known personally Go through friend list to make sure child knows the people Set posting-photo standards - kids are impulsive about what they write on social networking sites – the results last forever

37 Parental Social Media Safety Values 1.Keep lines of face to face communication with your kids 2.Friend your kids face book page 3.Friend the parents of your kids friends 4.PC and smart phones to be used in common family area 5.Monitor tweets, YouTube, Facebook posting & videos 6.Monitor cell phone bill 7.Random cell phone checks 8.Check the browser history 9.Create mutually agreed upon rules -time and usage 10.Shut it down completely for a day

38 Cyber-Core Values Discuss on and offline core values and their importance: –Privacy (do not share personal data elements: home town, address, ssn, dob, mothers maiden name ) –Confidentiality (keep personal and private matters off social networking sites) –Security and safety (control site login, password, account security settings) –Friending(define off and online-friendship, acquaintance) Talk about consequences when values are compromised on and off line- Donny Claxton message

39 Social Media Safety Values Do not post personal information, such as cell phone number, address, or the name of school or school team Never give out password to anyone Never meet in person with anyone you first met on a social networking site. Some people may not be whom they say they are Reconsider posting your photos Never respond to harassing or rude comments posted on your profile

40 Social Media Safety Values Check the privacy settings on sites that you use: Set privacy so that people can only be added as your friend if you approve it Set privacy so that people can only view your profile if you have approved them as a friend Protect your friends do not post names, passwords, ages, phone numbers, school names, or locations Do not post plans, travel and activities on your site Online posts are not private If you dont have anything good to say..dont post!

41 Final Thoughts Online safety is a journey not a destination… A holistic approach must be taken in order for us to have significant impact on the online safety of our nations youth.. Youth can benefit from adults being more open to forms of experimentation with digital technology… Parents and teachers report they dont understand digital technology, much less teach digital literacy… Hemanshu Nigam, Co-Chair Online Safety and Technology Group June, 2010
