Keeping up with our kids on social networking sites is getting tougher and tougher.  Not only do we have Twitter, Google Plus, Facebook and more – we have our own sites like Linked In that are great for networking.

It’s great to know what sites your kids are participating on and learn about the technology.  I made sure my kids ‘friend’ me on all their sites and if I don’t know how to use the site – ask them.  Now with teens using social networking as their main form of communication it’s a great way to keep up with their lives!  I have gotten lots of updated pictures of my kids from their friends posts. (Don’t forget to watch for Cyber Bullying too)

Over the next few days I’ll try to post a guide to using the basic sites.  (I may ask my kid’s what other sites their friends are using, I never hear anything about Second Life anymore)
