Social Media Safety, Privacy, and Parental Controls

Last year I wrote a post on here about social media privacy settings. Last week, per my principal's request I took what I had from that and added some things in regards to general social media safety along with guides to cell phone parental controls, and posted it to the school blog. We've talked about next year doing a program at one of the PTA meetings on this because a lot of parents don't seem to know what their kids are doing online and need to be aware and monitor it.
