When Facebook launched in 2004, it was exclusive to college students. In 2006 the social network opened up to high schoolers. Now open to anyone, the site has over 150 million users, young and old alike. The education community has grappled with how it can use Facebook as a learning tool, parents have wondered how to keep their children safe while using it, and employees and employers have navigated how and when to use the site professionally.
Today, May 12, Stanford University professor (and LMI board member) BJ Fogg is hosting a forum in Palo Alto, California highlighting ways that parents can help their children use Facebook safely and strategically. The event will also highlight the positive skills that youth can gain by using Facebook as a tool.
