There are all kinds of social media out there. (My personal favorite is StumbleUpon.) However, the only social media that my kids ever talk about are Facebook and MySpace. In fact, those are the only social media that I’ve ever heard any kids talk about…
As a mom, I have to tell you that social media for kids makes me VERY, VERY nervous. Despite the fact that the news often carries stories about how various social media companies will do a better job of protecting our kids, I have to admit that I still don’t feel completely comfortable with it for kids and teens.
What do you think? Is social media safe for our kids? What Internet safety precautions do you take with your family?
