Yes, perhaps people on the forum can adopt it as a picture repository, for all those fancy desktop pics?

Never goes down, AFAIK, but I think you have to join to be able to download....perhaps you will confirm if you join?

My desktops are plain ol' plain old, as I'm not very visually oriented Embarassed

Is anyone aware of methods for parents to monitor their children's Facebook accounts?

Their E-mail is all copied to our E-mail but Web mail and social networking accounts bypass that.

Our early-teen children want accounts but Facebook (like MySpace and YouTube and most other social networking sites) is loaded with anti-social influences which a responsible parent needs to monitor.

We need to be able to observe the communications and images from time to time to be sure that their interactions remain healthy and age-appropriate.

We have Tomato on our Netgear router and OpenDNS activated. What other tools are out there?

We don't want to be literally peering over their shoulders all the time but do need to "look in" now and then.

edoc, if you use firefox, try either of these

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/11595/

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1803/

There are security settings in many AV/Security suites, too

Other than that....talk to them, listen to their views, express your concerns for their safety Wink

Any idea if any of these will also work in Seamonkey (now 2.0.7)?

We are talking to them but you know how hormonally-insane teenagers are -- they know everything and are invincible -- and parents know nothing and are just trying to steal their fun.

Nothing has changed there for thousands of years!

Very Happy Hello,
When my twins were younger, and wanted Facebook / Myspace accounts, I made it clear that they could, but only if they "friended" me so I could see what they were up to.
I still do... I learn more about what they are up to from Facebook than I can find out "in person"..
Most parental software doesnt consider social networking sights as inappropriate..
But I believe Firefox can be set up to only allow a specific list of sites, IIRC...
Back in the Windoze days I used a keylogger....
Busted my kids good too.....
And my first Wife.....
Cool Cool Cool

Subject description: Facebook Filter 1.3.6 [Is this Puppy Linux Lucid 5.1 friendly?)
 

Yuck, you mean that I also have to waste time on Facebook along with them? Ewwww! Gag me with a whole serving set. (Valley-girl speak) Wink

I guess I either deny them Facebook or do as you recommend.

QUESTION: Should I start a new thread? I didn't intend to hijack this one.

I suppose I also might benefit from something like this:

Facebook Filter 1.3.6 [Is this Puppy Linux Lucid 5.1 friendly?)

Quote:
... a Firefox extension that lets you control which types of posts appear on your Facebook News Feed. You can choose to show or hide the following types of News Feed posts:

- “Is now friends with”
- “Became a fan of”
- “Joined a group”
- “Was tagged in an album”
- Events (announcing events and attending them)
- Applications (all except those you choose to exclude)


Thanks!

You could also tell your teens that psychologists have said Facebook is a meeting place for people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder

That might put them off using it Wink

I saw that - trust me, it would not phase them a bit - they are convinced that such things apply to others and that those with whom they wish to interact are OK.

Teens ...

Yes....its a while ago, but I have fond memories of teen invincibility....
Had me racing round a track in a go-kart at 70+ MPH....climbing mountains, non-swimmer ocean sailing, and jumping off really steep hills with not much more than a bit of silk and cord....until I took up gliding.....YeeHaah!!

It's all relative to danger

We all learn in our own ways, remember?

Jay...back to the facebook group, eh? [sorry, you won't catch me on there, ....too many weirdos Laughing Laughing ]

If they don't like electronic documents, then i will guess that they prefer such a places as Buchenvald. The more crimes from them, the more rewards to them.

be warned, they can add you to a list, and filter you out from "inapropiate" (Razz) content.
