Facebook for Parents - class summary

We had a great group of parents at our most recent "Facebook for Parents" class!

The group was a cross-section of people with varying technical experience.  Some had younger children and were preparing themselves for the inevitable day when the kids joined Facebook.  Some parents had college age kids who set up their Facebook accounts for them, in order to stay in touch.  And a few were already experienced in the tool, and just wanted to learn more.

A few revelations that occurred for the attendees during the class include:
  • There is nothing preventing one of your Facebook friends from uploading ANY picture, and tagging it with your name. Our attendees now know how to update their privacy settings to ensure each photo that they get tagged in is approved by them before it is made public.

Parenting the Facebook Generation

On September 14, Harrisburg University of Science and Technology held “Social Media Summit 2011”, a gathering of great minds and perspectives on all things related to Social Media.  The organizers of the event were clear to point out that they did not want to offer topics that were found everywhere else, and they certainly succeeded on that front!  Among the many sessions was the topic of “Parenting the Facebook Generation”, a session full of useful tips, interesting facts, and heartfelt stories.

This guy is my hero

My folks waved at me at the bus stop from time to time, just to embarrass me, but nothing like this guy!

Dale Price stands on his front porch every day to wave at his son on the bus, but in costume each time!  Check out his blog at Wave at the Bus to see every day of the school year!

There is a whole writeup on Yahoo News - I suspect his popularity will only increase from here!
