Facebook's default privacy settings are not for everyone – especially minors – which is why the service allows users to customize their settings. The following chart shows ConnectSafely's recommendations for most teens. We realize that not all teens have the same level of maturity and that not all parents have the same rules for their kids' online socializing, so please review this chart with your teens to help set the right privacy settings for them. For more on Facebook safety and privacy for teens, please see our booklet A Parents' Guide to Facebook . Please note : If you're not already logged into Facebook and you click on a link to Facebook below the Table of Contents, you'll be asked to provide user name and password the first time only.

Welcome to the fully updated 2012 edition of A Parents' Guide to Facebook (PDF)! It’s designed to help you understand what Facebook is and how to use it safely.

That's important because 1) if something goes wrong, we want our children to come to us and 2) as the Internet becomes increasingly social and mobile, a parent’s guidance and support are ever more key to young people’s well-being in social media and technology. The guidebook is published in partnership with the iKeepSafe Coalition.
