    Social Networking Safety

    Evening all,

    I have come across the following section of the popular Bebo site. It has a wealth of information for pupils, staff and parents.

    http://www.bebo.com/safety

    After coming across the above site, I thought perhaps this is common amongst the popular networking sites, and MySpace have a similar section, not quite as user-friendly, but all the same, please have a look and pass it on.

    www.myspace.com/safety

    I thought something like this would be useful as group discussions amougst the kids. Something to share with your staff perhaps?

    Bebo scares the hell out of me - the amount of stuff people post online about themselves is unbelievable! We warn our kids all the time but they still do stupid things like posting their mobile numbers, which school they go to, which town they live in, etc. And some of our staff are no better.

    Thanks for this. I am due to do a session on internet safety for parents - as I don't want the Panarama program putting a lot of fear into parents.

    Has anybody done anything similar before for parents - i'll probably be doing a powerpoint and a handout for all parents to take away.

    It will be a voltunary session and I can't imagine a lot of parents turning up - but it ticks boxes with OFSTED and the likes.

    Do any other schools offer advice on Internet safety / bullying to students through a PHSE lesson etc?

    Thanks

    While they do post all these 'safety guidelines' they're still enabling (almost encouraging?) their users to post their personal details for all to see, and users still do. The guidelines are all there to be read, but what proportion of our kids read it, and of those who do how many of them actually take in the guidelines and protect themselves?
