Here are suggestions from the National Crime Prevention Council:
- Make sure your teen only provides the required information when filling out a profile, and skips the optional. The teen shouldn't include an address or phone number.
- Have your teen make a profile available to friends only.
- Your teen should only "friend" an acquaintance, never someone unknown.
- Encourage your teen to post only information that's appropriate and doesn't reveal private details.
