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.
