Do you children have a Twitter account? It is amazing these days how many do have their own Twitter account and they spend all day sending out “tweets” to their friends. This is a new area of the web that every parent should be aware of. It’s called Web 2.0 or, Social Networking. This is where websites no longer are only about selling things or groups, its about people, who they are, where they came from, their goals, dreams, and what they are doing right at this moment.

Why is this an issue? Well, the search engines are tired of old websites, they want fresh content. And Web2.0 is all about freshness. What does that mean? It means, that blogs, tweets, and other up to the minute postings are ranked very high and very quickly with the major search engines. And that could pose a safety risk to those that are unaware of this issue.

Did you know that if you do not mark your Twitter account as Private, than anyone can follow you? And see what your tweeting about, and you will never know it!

Did you know that when you send out a tweet, it goes into the public tweet stream? This means that people can be alerted to this statement as soon as it hits the public stream.

Did you know that the “verified Twitter accounts are only for the famous?

Did you know that you can have an unlimited number of Twitter accounts?

As a parent, I am very aware of these issues and I am very careful about what my children have access to on the Internet. I have talked with my child and everyone in my family about how easy it is to pretend to be whoever you want to be on the internet. And Twitter is no different. These Twitter accounts are easy to create and people need to stopt taking them at face vaule. That person you are tweeting with could be lieing about everything to you.

I learned a very valuable statement that has stayed with me ever since I learned it. And I would like to pass it to you, and hope that you will remember this and teach your children this. “Trust but Verify” In the world of the Internet and all the different social networking sites, this is one of the best statements ever.

So, what should you do? Do not be afraid to talk with your kids about safety on the Internet. Let them know that not everyone is who they say they are on the Internet. That there are good people and bad people out there. That they should never post any personal information anywhere. And if they do want to meet with someone that they met online, you want to go with them.

I have talked with my nephew a number of times about safety and security, and after a number of talks he gets it! No longer does his MySpace page have his phone number on it, no longer is he sending out tweets about exactly where he is, and exactly what he is doing. This to me is a success! Are his tweets boring? No, in fact he told me he gets more comments about them from his friends than before. Since these tweets are more “mysterious” than before.

If your child or someone else in your family has a Twitter account, here are some safety tips you should talk with them about.

1. Never give out your full name to someone
2. Never tweet your phone number
3. Never tweet your exact location
4. Never give personal information of any kind over the Internet
5. Ask yourself, why does this person want to follow me?
6. Is your Twitter profile private? If not, why isn’t it?

I will be updating my Journal here with more information.
