My son (14) is begging for a Facebook page. He has agreed to setting it to private, having me as a friend, and giving me his username/password so I can access it if necessary. We have not decided to allow him, yet. My husband's concern is that kids are already constantly in contact with one another and is this just going to add to that. I think DS wants one because it has basically replaced AIM for teens. I know most of his friends have them, and I'm pretty sure if we don't allow him, he will eventually make one anyway (he is a teenager, after all) and I won't have access/knowledge of what he's up to. Jem's thread about photostalker also has me thinking. My older son will be a junior this year and would like a Facebook page,too. I have some concerns that could be more cyber-paranoia than anything else. Do colleges search sites like Facebook and use what they find when considering acceptances/scholarships? Is that unreasonable? It would be easy for colleges to do. He's worked so hard academically and athletically to maximaize his college opportunities, I'd hate to see something like this jeopardize his future. How many of you allow your teens to have a Facebook? What precautions do you have in place?
