Guidebook by Anne Collier and Larry Magid of COnnectSafely.org is published in partnership with the iKeepSafe Coalition.

ConnectSafely.org and the iKeepSafe Coalition are pleased to announce the publication of A Parents' Guide to Facebook. The 35-page booklet and online resource available for reading and printing at www.connectsafely.org/fbparents provides parents with the perspective and how-to information they need to help their teens optimize their privacy and safety on Facebook.

The guide features hands-on, step-by-step instructions and illustrations, as well as parenting points on safety, privacy, and reputation protection. It covers both cellphone- and computer-based use of Facebook and the site's newest features, including Places, Groups, and the latest privacy updates.
