Facebook for Parents

What are the potential challenges with Facebook?

As with any form of social media, there are some challenges that young people may face when using Facebook. These can include online grooming (when an adult makes online contact with someone under the age of 16 with the intention of engaging in a sexual relationship) or cyberbullying and harassment. Other challenges include privacy concerns, such as revealing too much personal information on Facebook, reputation management or falling victim to scams shared through social networking sites.
