There is a post about Facebook on the church’s semi-official IT blog. It sort of says facebook is like terrorism, you will never eliminate it, so you better learn to manage it. Those are my words, not his.
Here is some of the post encouraging parents and leaders to get involved online:
if you are a parent of a teenage or a youth leader, you are probably less technically savvy than the youth you work with. Many parents and youth leaders I have spoken with don’t really understand what Facebook is and most have never visited the Web site. I’m not advocating spying on your kids (I’ll leave that up to your own discretion) but I do think parents and leaders should visit Facebook and see what the youth are doing online.
For the record, I absolutely advocate spying on your kids, and telling them that you are doing it. They secretly like the attention, it is like you are paparazzi.. and they are the celebrities.
