Poke! Facebook Launches New App For Sending 'Self-Destructing' Messages -- AppAdvice - 1 views

  •  
    Facebook has launched its response to Snapchat, with Facebook Poke, the self destructing message deliverer? Why would you want a message to self destruct or delete itself if a person tried to do a screengrab on their phone? Well, so you can send goofy pics to your friends with no trace left behind! Never fear, however, teenagers are here. They've been talking to me about how they get around this - if you're snap chatting a friend and you have a friend with you - get the friend up close to be ready to take a picture with their camera phone and then post the pic on Facebook that was delivered with Snapchat. They think it is hilarious but admit that this app is also being used as a new way to "flash" others. How long will it take for everyone to learn that you can't ever really destroy anything any more? If it is done it is permanent - the easiest way to keep private things private is to never do them in the first place. This article goes into more about Facebook poke if you really get into that sort of thing or want to keep up with what the kids are doing.

Facebook Increasingly Becomes a Helpful Tool for Employers in Job Interviews | Moneylan... - 6 views

  •  
    It is legal for a prospective employer during a job interview to ask you to log into your facebook page and click through your friends only posts, photos, and messages. This is a very important topic for digital citizens to understand.

    This is an important article. I'm going to discuss it with my Digiteen class this morning and have them comment here.
  •  
    I don't think that is fair. The employer has no right to be a part of their personal life. Although, they need to know about what they say on the internet. I would not want someone i don't know looking at my profile page.
  •  
    This is a good and a bad thing. It is a good thing because if someone is bad than you know not to hire them. it is a bad thing because people should not be judged on what their friends post. Just because their friends might post bad things does not mean that they are bad.
  •  
    Well, for me the act of "shoulder surfing" is good as well bad. It is good because as an employer if I don't know the maybe future employee this would be good to base my opinion on whether or not to hire them. This also can be bad, as the future employee may have private conversation with his or her wife that they do not want anyone to see (this is just to give an example).
  •  
    I guess i could understand why they have this. I personally like this idea in most ways, but not all. For example, its good for finding if the person your employing is a criminal, or someone bad. But its kind of bad because what if someone is not accepted because they were talking with a 'special someone' and the employers saw. That doesn't really seem fair to me, because that is your personal PERSONAL info, and no one else needs to see it besides you and who you are talking to. Unless of course its about something bad like planning something illegal. The main downside i see in this is maybe that person created a fake Facebook that looks all great and seems like they are a good person. Then a not-so-good person might have gotten a job that they wouldn't have gotten otherwise. I can't really decide if this is good or bad, but for now, I'm going to say it's bad.
  •  
    Well i think it is 50/50, because you have to be careful of what you put out there. And i don't think they should go on your friends facebook account to look at there posts and not yours! I also don't think they should judge you by your friends!
  •  
    I dont know exactly if this is fair or not. I can see where employers are coming from by wanting to see their possible employees facebook account, but i also think that a lot of the stuff that we may post may be completely personal while being completely innocent. everyone needs privacy and if they decide to do that through facebook then they have the right.
  •  
    I think its a good video to watch because it definitely made me think. The video also scared me even thought i don't have a Facebook. I now know how to stay safe if i get one.
  •  
    I think that the post is mean. I don't really like the post because it makes the person look bad.

ACLU Sues School For Punishing 12-Year-Old Over Facebook Comment - 2 views

  •  
    You'll want to read this lawsuit as it lies on the cusp of what we will experience in schools in the future. In this case, a 12 year old girl (on Facebook, despite the fact she is technically too young to be) is suing a school district (via the ACLU) for punishment because of her use of Facebook. I think the school went too far when it required her to hand over her Facebook and email login to the school, but we'll see what the courts decide.

    The ACLU says this is a violation of free speech. Stay tuned and realize that students have a right to hate you, say unkind things about you, etc. There is a fine line in what is allowed and what isn't. Just because we CAN deal with issues relating to bullying of other children - that doesn't mean we can wear our own chips on our shoulders and require that kids pretend to like us. It is hurtful when children say unkind things and many don't realize everyone is watching. If students are not understanding the consequences of their actions, then I partially blame any school that doesn't step up and teach digital citizenship.

Parents vs Facebook - 1 views

  •  
    The controversial between Facebook crossing the line or being "ok"! A teenage girl goes on FB after coming home past her curfew and drunk. She get grounded for 5 weeks (no friends or parties)
    ! She goes and makes a petition on FB (1,000 likes to get her ungrounded") Some teenagers amaze me with how stupid they can be online! Don't ya think that the page would infuriate her parents more instead of arguing her "point"?! Teens like her are the reason good parents are so strict about the internet!

Parenting: Healthy Boundaries Improve Parent-Teen Relationships | Safetyweb Blog - 1 views

  •  
    Online parenting is just like regular parenting! Parents need to realize that if they want their kids to respect the boundaries online, they need to find a little compromise with excepting some of their son/daughter's boundaries for themselves! Don't go writing of their Facebook wall or reading messages! Some things are sacred! You can't pull the "I pay for this, Facebook is free!"

    Quote:
    "We all want our kids' respect. That's why we've got to hold them accountable for respecting our boundaries. While we're at it, we need to respect their boundaries too. Great advice, though not always easy to follow. But like I said, parenting is an art... you've got to practice to improve. Besides, we're not looking for perfection, just progress."

UK online safety expert proposes Pet Society feature as dangerous to children - 2 views

  • Conway, a self-touted "online safety expert,"
  • stranger danger"
  • By being in the Cafe, you're bound to meet strangers. Even though all you can do once you get to another pet's home is some pre-set actions (e.g. hug, kiss, dance, laugh, and punch), there's also the option to visit the real Facebook profile of a someone you might not know at all. Conway demonstrated this by creating an avatar named "BunnyPig" to demonstrate to a group of foster care and social workers.
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • Because Facebook games require players to have lots of friends to earn virtual money and goods, Conway concludes that kids will be tempted to friend strangers
  • And in turn, he estimates that malevolent strangers can scope out kids who play the game. This "Go to profile" option is clearly a valid concern and does exist in the game.
  • kids under 13 years-old could still lie to Facebook about their age just to have a Facebook account.
  •  
    This article is by Charles Conway. He says that children must friend a lot of people to get coins or money for Pet Society , a fast growing Facebook game. This means children under the age of 13 are becoming interested in this website. They might even lie to create an account. Adding people they do not know will be a bad habit for children at this youngof age.

  • It also starts to explain how parents can find that instead of the 50 or 60 close friends that they know in ‘real life’, their child has a Facebook friend list that numbers in the hundreds or even thousands”
  • “Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg once said ‘If Facebook were a country, it would be the 6th largest country in the world’. Based on current figures, it would now be the 3rd largest country, with a population of over 800 million people.

    These are more tips for a parent to help their child stay safe and away from predators on facebook.
    "In order to keep your child's identity safe on their Facebook account you will want to talk to them about what they should and should not put in their profile. Profiles contain personal info and recent activity. It would be wise to have your child put some false information on there to mislead people who are trying to steal their identity."

    These statistics show that over 800 million people actively use Facebook! Its kind of scary to think that your child has the possibility of being friend-ed by any of them?! Be an aware parent and watch over your child's online activity, but do it form afar! Don't go get on their page! Make your own! That's taking away trust and we are entering a digital age! You need to be on the internet learning just as much as your children do!
