Teach Your Kids About Passwords In Social Media

August 17, 2009

My little guy, (I say that tongue in cheek as he is 14 years old and taller than I am) made the mistake of giving his Facebook password to a girlfriend.

Now an ex-girlfriend.

So she used his ID and password to login to his account and start a massive smear campaign with all his Facebook ‘Friends’.

In some she ‘fessed up after strings of vitriolic comments;

lol , kate it’s shauna .
i hacked his account . lmaaao

Some she did not.

After a discussion, in my opinion, he is doing the right thing, I advised avoiding the vitriol himself and plainly state what happened. He showed me some of the messages, and that is what he is doing.

The bottom line; have you had that discussion with your kids?
