A new exciting feature that we’ve all been waiting for is finally on Facebook and will start to function from Wednesday. Photo tagging for pages now allows users to have the ability to tag Pages in their photos on Facebook.  It seems as though Facebook is hoping to enrich the user experience by enhancing the capabilities of the Facebook platform.

Hi my name is Facebook

While writing my ‘legitimate’ blog for the week and simultaneously juggling between Jewish Tweets and another six tabs, I read that an Israeli couple who were inspired by Facebook named their daughter ‘Like’. There is already an innocent Egyptian babela out there named ‘Facebook’.

Social networks that are children friendly

Posted by Zircon in social network , parental control , Facebook , children

Zircon

It is every parent's concern (well, should be) as to where their kids play online and what they do.  To accommodate this, one will find various parental control programs such as CyberPatrol, etc ...

It just so happens, that kids want to be part of peer groups and be in with the friends and so they will explore and play online, sometimes where they are not really permitted to.

Facebook has an age restriction of 13, and according to their stats, about 20 000 kids, 13 years and younger, try to sneak their way onto facebook.  Even if your child is older than 13, you as a parent can still keep an eye on their online activities, here is a link with some valuable advice and information - http://facebook-parental-controls-review.toptenreviews.com/

To accommodate this need, a few companies went and designed 'safe' social network areas, where these kids can go to play and learn.  They have all the traditional 'bells-and-whistels' we are used to with the added parental oversight.

To see who these companies are and to read more about them, you are welcome to follow this link - http://facebook-parental-controls-review.toptenreviews.com/top-10-social-networks-for-kids.html ...

Hope the info is of some assistance to yous.

Take care,

I was lucky enough to come home to Johannesburg for the Easter weekend. It has been a very busy, very short break. But a much deserved one nevertheless! Whilst spending some time with my extended family, my youngest cousin, Sabrina, was talking about all the plans she has for her school holidays. And my younger brother, Bradley, became very upset when he realised that Sabrina was going to be on holiday until next week Tuesday, 3 May 2011. The reason this upset my brother, is because Sabrina goes to a government school (unlike my brother who is a private, Catholic school), which means she has already had her first term break. Being allowed to miss seven days of school, in the middle of term time, is usually a very difficult thing to get away with.

With facebook being one of the most popular social networking sites used, it would appear to be the most appropriate place for users to express their feelings, over share information and check up on others.

I admit… I am a
Facebook addict! I eat, breath, sleep
AND Facebook and so do millions of other users. Twitter is also in the picture now, competing for my time and status updates. These networking sites and media tools are changing social behaviours and experiences so it’s not surprising that businesses are also getting hooked on to this culture as well.
