Facebook allows and encourages users to share personal information and their location. Parents and carers need to have intentional conversations about what to share and what not to share, and who to share it with.
There is potential for cyberbullying to take place on Facebook, as with all social media platforms. Inappropriate content can be shared and young people need to be aware of posting information or images of themselves now that they may regret in the future.
As with all social networking sites, users should be wary of connecting with others they don’t know offline as people can create fake accounts and profiles.
