Okay, I know I'm a Wilma Flintstone living in a Jane Jetson world. But I really am trying to catch up & keep up with the new technology. I communicate a lot through email and as you see, on online forums like this. The whole MySpace thing passed me by without a pause in my frame of reference. But now it seems that many people are using FaceBook as a primary means of communication. And I am still very much in the dark about it. I have people sending me invitations to "be their friend" on FaceBook, but I don't often reply to them. And during the few times I've had time to go look on other people's FaceBook pages leaves me a bit confused. It's like opening a door to a big room with lots of conversations going on between people, lots of things to see, both personal pictures and commercial advertisements. I don't stay long because I really don't know the etiquette. Now my 16-year-old son is asking for his own FaceBook page. He'd have to set up his own email account for that, and promises to not use it for sending/receiving emails, just to have the FaceBook page. Now I know the concerns & cautions about having teens online, but what about on FaceBook? Please let me know how I should instruct my son for his own protection before he opens his own door to the world on FaceBook. Or am I just being overly cautious?
