Facebook to educate kids, parents about online privacy
Washington: Facebook and an organization of 56 state and territorial attorneys general in the United States have teamed up to offer teens and their parents tips over privacy on the social networking site.
Doug Gansler, the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) president and Maryland`s attorney general, will announce that the two groups will work together in the coming months to educate teens and their parents through a number of different informational webpages and videos.
Gansler told a news website that parents and children will be taught how the privacy settings on the world`s most popular social network are used.
The education will begin through the launch of a few different educational web tools, he said.
A Facebook and NAGG "Safety and Privacy on Facebook" page on the social network will feature information on privacy settings, best practices and a tip sheet on how to set up privacy controls.
The page will also include "Ask the Safety Team" videos, in which members of Facebook`s safety team answer questions about privacy, bullying and safety, the report said.
It will also include a basic primer video explaining what Facebook is and how to use it, it added.
