Parents, do you know what your kids are doing on Facebook?

This is not advertizing for Facebook, but at the urging of a fellow parent, I joined Facebook to find out what my kids were doing there and I was very surprized. I had to get their permission on line to become their facebook "friend" but when they had given me permission, I had access to all the information they have there and not only their's but their friends' too! I think this is a great tool for them to keep in touch (they have met up with old best friends from elementary days) but I don't think they know just how far this information goes and it never goes away.
So, I urge parents of teenagers to do likewise, not to spy on their kids, but to join with them in using this. You never know, you may meet up with some old friends of your own.
