Magic in Numbers
Facebook is one of the most widely used social media networking sites with more that 900 million user worldwide.
The magic age for kids to be considered Facebook legal is 13 years old.
It is estimated that 7.5 million of the current users are under the age of 13 and 5 million under the age of 10.

Requirements for Signing up
Facebook does require a person to be 13 years of age to sign-up for an account. However at the present time they do not have any real requirements for proving your age.
Facebook has revealed that they are testing technology that would allow children under 13 to utilize the site with parental consent.

To Friend or not to Friend?
By being your child's Facebook friend you can monitor their online activity in the same way you would keep an eye on them in real life
This will also mean you need to keep your Facebook profile PG13 as well but this sacrifice is worth your child's safety
Follow your child, get notifications for all their activity

You and I may not have grown up in the digital world but our kids will grow up as natives in the digital world. They will grow up with the internet and not know a life without it.

Our children may know more about using a computer and the internet than we do, however, it is still
responsibility to ensure they are protected online.

Whatever the age of our children, it is important to keep them safe when browsing websites, using social networking services such as Facebook, and chatting with friends using instant messaging programs.

In this presentation I am going to go over various advanced privacy and security settings and how to use them, discuss known security issues with Facebook and go over steps to keep our kids safe on Facebook.
Timeline Post, How do I prevent people from posting on your timeline?
Only you and your friends can post on your Timeline. To prevent your friends from posting on your Timeline:

Go to the Arrow in the upper right corner
Go to Settings
Go Timeline and Tagging
Go to "Who can post on your Timeline?
Click Edit
Select "Only Me" from the drop down menu

Note: Your friends will still be able to comment on any post they can see (ex: a photo you share on your Timeline that includes them in the audience).

Safety & Privacy on acebook
Table of Contents
Every parent should know their child's password
Facebook is not private
Everything they say or do online has a lasting impact on their reputation and safety
Every photo or post they are tagged in by a friend can haunt them for the rest of their lives
Knowing their parents have access may make them a little more vigilant
Monitor their friends list
Periodically check to see who they are friends with
Make sure they have not friended a complete stranger
Safety First
OK so you are your child's parent, does that mean you can't be their Facebook friend?
No, your child's online activity will follow them for the rest of their lives. Their activity online can impact their ability to get "that" job when they are older. Protect, educate and monitor their activity now.
Privacy Settings
Audience Selector
This changes who, by default, can see your status updates. You can set it to Public, Friends, or something custom (like only one of your networks). However, this setting means almost nothing.
You can decide who sees any individual post by setting it from the status box as you write, and it will not revert back to the default afterwards. That means if you make one post and set it to Public, you'll need to set it back to "Friends Only" the next time, or all your future posts will be public. The "default" setting in your privacy settings doesn't really do anything.
Audience Selector
You can find the audience selector in places you share status updates, photos and other posts
How do you change your audience on a post you've already shared on your timeline?

How do I review tags that people add to my posts before they appear?
Tag review is an option that lets you approve or dismiss tags that people add to your posts. When you turn it on, any time someone tags something you posted, that tag won't appear until you approve it.

To turn on tag review:
Click at the top right of any Facebook page and select Settings
In the left column, click Timeline and Tagging
Look for the setting Review tags people add to your own posts before the tags appear on Facebook? and click Edit to the far right
Select Enabled from the drop down menu
When tag review is enabled, you’ll get a notification when you have a post to review. You can approve or ignore the tag request by going to the post.

Note: When you approve a tag, not only will your friends and the person who tagged you see the post but the friends of the tagger may also see the post. If you don't want your post to be visible to the friends of the person tagged you, you can adjust this setting.

Deleted Data, Where does it go?
When you choose to delete something you shared on Facebook, Facebook removes it from the site. Some of this information is permanently deleted from their servers; however, some things can only be deleted when you permanently delete your account.

The reason for this is that Facebook needs certain data to give you the best experience on Facebook possible. For example, they save information about the friend requests you reject so that they know not to surface those people as people you might want to connect with. Facebook also saves information about the tags you remove to make sure that you aren't re-tagged in the same photo.

What Makes you Vulnerable on Facebook:
4.7 million “liked” a Facebook page about health conditions or treatments (details an insurer might use against you).
4.8 million have used Facebook to say where they planned to go on a certain day (a potential tip-off for burglars)
20.4 million included their birth date, which can be used by identity thieves
39.3 million identified family members in their profile
900K discussed finances on their wall
1.6 million liked a page pertaining to racial or ethnic affiliations
2.3 million liked a page regarding sexual orientation
7.7 million liked a page pertaining to a religious affiliation
2.6 million discussed their recreational use of alcohol on their wall
4.6 million discussed their love life on their wall

Safety & Your Kids
Secure Browsing on Facebook
There are so many Facebook apps out there that it is hard to decipher which ones are not privacy-invading apps. It is so important to protect yourself and your personal information from identity theft. Using HTTPS will protect you from outside attacks, especially when using Wi-Fi networks or public computers. To tell if you are using this feature currently, look in your address bar at the top of your browser. If it says HTTPS://www.facebook.com/user name, then you already have the feature activated

To enable this feature:
Go to the arrow in the top right
Go to Settings
Go to Security in the left pane
Click Secure Browsing
Check the box "Browse Facebook on a secure connection (https) whenever possible"

Note: you will only see the secure browsing option if it is not already in use.

You want to make sure you are the only one logging into your account but what happens if someone gets a hold of your password?
If you activate Two Factor-Authentication it will then send a code to your phone every time your account is logged in to on a new device or computer.

To enable:
Go to the arrow in the top right
Go to Settings
Go to Security in the left pane
Go to Login Approvals
Check the box that says "Require me to enter a security code each time an unrecognized computer or device tries to access my account" (see image)
Hide your Preferred Music, Photos, Groups
Ever wonder how to hide your preferred music, your "my photos", "my groups" or all those little boxes on the left of your Timeline so that people viewing your Timeline cannot see them?

To enable the "viewership/privacy for sections:"

Go to your Timeline
Go to Update Info
Go to the pencil icon in the upper right
Go to Manage Sections
Uncheck any boxes you want to have hidden

Note: individual stories in hidden sections can still appear on your Timeline, in News Feed and elsewhere on Facebook.

Known Security Issues with Facebook
Facebook Apps
With the exception of a few specific apps, Facebook applications, on the whole, are insecure, have access to your profile and personal data and are full of annoying Ads. You may not realize it but when you are playing those popular games on Facebook, such as Farmville, or when you take those popular online quizzes, you are allowing that game to download to your profile, giving them information in which they can pass onto third parties..

Age Verification
Currently Facebook has no way to verify the age of new users signing up for a Facebook account, allowing minors to create accounts.
GPS Locations
Most people are unaware that when uploading photos to Facebook from their Smartphones or iPhones with their GPS turned on they are providing predators with their location. If the phones GPS is turned on and the cameras GPS settings have not been disabled then you are providing the location of where the picture was taken, exposing yourself and any children who may be in the picture
Bullying occurs anywhere people socialize and Facebook is no different. Bullying on Facebook can be more frightening because now the bully can access their target in the safety of their own home.
Due to the lack of verification in creating Facebook accounts, bullies can now create fake profiles to hide behind when bullying online.

Identity Theft
When you post personal information on Facebook, like your address, full birth date, phone numbers, etc., without changing the privacy settings you are opening yourself up to potential identity theft.
There are also predators who will take your profile picture, your name and create a duplicate account. They re-add your friends to gain access to their information as well. Your friends will have no idea it is not you they are friending.
Malware Hidden in Videos
Video posts that take you away from Facebook and require you to share the video before you can view it actually contain malware and not only are you allowing the hacker access to your personal information on Facebook but without the proper firewall in place you are opening up your computer as well.
Your own Friends
Your data is shared more widely than you may wish. Even if you have restricted your information to be seen by friends only, a friend who is using a Facebook app could allow your data to be transferred to a third party without your knowledge. They also have the ability to share or download your posts, as well as, your photos without your permission.

The "Everyone" Setting
The "Everyone" setting does not mean the same for minors as it is for you and I. If your child's privacy settings are set to "Everyone," that includes only friends, friends of friends, and people within the child's verified school or work network. In saying that the "Everyone" setting still allows for adults to search for minors by name and send them friend requests and vice versa, unless we as parents change that setting manually.

You said what on Facebook?
It is more important than that we protect ourselves and our children on and offline. It is not just physical protection, it is protecting the reputations and identities of ourselves and our children. What our children do now online can haunt them the rest of their lives. What happens on the internet "Stays" on the internet. Educate your children, monitor their online activity.
