Facebook Cartoon Profile Pic News: How To Protect Your Child!

Facebook cartoon profile pic news: Protect your kids!!

The latest Facebook cartoon profile pic news is that the whole thing may or may not be a scam perpetrated by child predators trying to friend young people. The idea is that kids would be more likely to friend people with fun, silly pictures as their profile. I have serious doubts whether this is true (did all the online predators get together for an impromptu meeting on Facebook scams? who organizes them?), but it raises a very important question: How do you keep your kid safe on Facebook?

I don’t think panicking over Facebook cartoons is worth the effort. If your son or daughter is friending people on Facebook that he or she does not know, which would presumably be the case in the child predator scenario, then they need a crash course on Facebook smarts. Or they are way too young to have the responsibility of a Facebook page.

My kids are both under 7, so Facebook is a ways off for us. I’d like to know what rules YOU have instituted to ensure your kids stay safe on the social network even if Captain Caveman tries to friend them. Add your answer below.
