Found this short guide intended to help parents' understand risks of children using Twitter. Fairly basic e-safety info that probably applies to more than Twitter, but not bad. There is also a guide to Facebook linked from the page, but it's not as comprehensive as the other material already on here.

Heard about this software today that can detect whether you are talking to a child or to an adult via MSN, facebook etc, could be a good add-in to "ways to help protect yourself" type conversation with students/parents.
The accreditation is expensive, but the Self Review Tool is useful: 360 degree safe - Home
Andie found out that we're fine to produce our own versions of the KCC poster as long as we credit them.
Attached to this post is the one I've done in word... not perfect, but at least it's editable!
If you want to see the text boxes in Office 2003 use Tools>Options and go to the View tab then check the Text Bondaries box.
Everything is grouped to stop it jumping about except the 'school logo'

I've modified my FaceBook Privacy Settings Document again in line with the most recent changes to photos, video and tagging
Particularly pertinent given this on BBC News: BBC News - Facebook sorry over face tagging launch

There has been a healthy series of discussions over on a LinkedIn group looking at eSafety Law and the following resources was shared. Although not UK based it still has a number of interesting insights.

CEOP have produced this guide to Formspring - which includes how to sort out Privacy settings for it.
Facebook now has a place for education establishments to go to get advice on using social networking and how to handle its use with young people
facebook for educators
I haven't yet read it properly and so cannot comment on how many pinches of salt are required
And to complete the Social Networking set from the CEOP Newsletter:
As you may know, the Little Gossip website is back online following its closure earlier this year.
If you’re not familiar with the website, it is a message board where users can post anonymous public messages about people and link these messages to a school, college, university or organisation, thus creating a searchable archive of gossip and rumour. Users can then vote on whether they think these rumours to be true.
CEOP previously received a number of emails from schools and parents concerned that the postings on the website were highly offensive and that it encouraged cyberbullying.
The site received significant criticism in the press and was shut down voluntarily by its owners in February. It is now back up and running once again with additional measures in place to try and discourage users under 18. These include explicitly stating that users should be over 18 and the removal of schools from the drop down list of organisations.
Despite the changes made to the website, there is still concern over this site’s potential for anonymous harassment of young people. We would advise schools to block young people from accessing the website where possible.
Any offensive material should be reported to the website via the ‘Report’ link next to the messages. The site’s owners state that any comments reported by email to firstname.lastname@example.org will be removed as quickly as possible.
In previous information received from Little Gossip, they informed CEOP that they would remove any organisation listed on the website if it was reported to them that there were people under 18 years old that attend i.e. any schools with pupils under 18.

Oh boy! Have they changed things this time, or what?!
It's been more-or-less a complete rewrite to get this one correct and I must acknowledge the help of both my teenagers in getting to the bottom of it this time.
Be patient and wade through your settings, it is worthwhile!
I have a feeling there'll be more changes soon though e-Safety implications of the new Facebook Timeline
