Facebook Privacy Video for Parents

Common Sense Media has created a 3.5-minute video guide to help parents figure out the latest Facebook privacy settings. Narrated by Caroline Knorr, Common Sense’s parenting editor, the video shows step-by-step how to adjust settings to protect your child’s privacy.

“Facebook continues to update its privacy policies. Every time Facebook makes a change, parents and kids should immediately take the time to redo or review their privacy settings,” notes Common Sense Media.

Screen from Common Sense Media's Facebook privacy guideIn the most recent overhaul, many of the Facebook privacy options have been set to defaults that allow broad access to what your children post on their pages or on their friends’ pages. And the default for many privacy options for minors is ‘friends of friends,’ which could be thousands of kids that your kids don't know,” Common Sense warns. “In other words, your kids’ privacy settings must be redone. Our step-by-step video shows you how to do it.”

Common Sense Media is a nonprofit dedicated to improving the media lives of kids and families. MetroKids occasionally publishes Common Sense media reviews of TV shows, movies, games and software.
