It has been way to long since my last comment, but I do visit you often 🙂
I don’t have kids, but being a book and social media promoter for many fine authors, I see new SM places pop up all the time. I actually had a cyber-bully who hacked a couple of my SM places, and they were NASTY! And took some work to get them to stop.
BUT, I do have friends who have teens and one found she was talking to a stranger– on Instagram & her FB messaging, and she was talking to them from her iphone, so she put blocks on both and gave her daughter a stern talking to. Scary how these cyber creeps prey on teens and young kids. Parents need to check their kids cell phones, computers, iPads, everything they use to communicate with their so called friends. Parents have that right to keep their kids safe!
That’s my 2 cents worth, now I’m Broke! LOL. Hope all is well your way XOXO

Thank you… You see it more than most parents being a SM promoter. I see many parents who really don’t realize how much is out there…but their kids do!
Nice to see you here 🙂

Reblogged this on georgeforfun.
I forced my kids to be “friends” with me on FB otherwise they could not have an account. They didn’t like it at first but they got used to it. I also asked for their passwords and they gave them to me. They are now 21 and 19 and are realizing the effect that social media can have on getting a job and have made their Twitter accounts private and are careful about what they post. My daughter had a substitute teacher contact her on Twitter and write her an inappropriate note. She told me right away and he was fired from the school. Communication is key! 🙂
Loved reading thiis thanks
