First of all and for the umpteenth time I am not a member of Face Book which is clearly shown on my profile, persistence will not pay off by continuing to harp on about Face Book and its unseemly tributes, there can be little doubt that some good can come about from using Face Book however, the goodness from Face Book is minuscule compared to that of the distress and harm which has been created by this monster. Practically every crime in the 'Villians Manual' a compendium of skulduggery and wickedness can be attributed or sourced from Face Book.
Here below are a few tips on 'How to stay safe on face book'
This is not an admission by me that you should continue to use Face Book or become a member of Face Book.
Choose your online friends carefully. A person can pretend to be someone else.
Don't accept friend requests if you don't know who that person is.
Keep personal details about yourself private.
Do not use your real name, use a pseudo or nick name instead especially in websites where you do not know a lot of people.
If you are a child, ask your parents or guardians you trust before you give your real name and personal details to people you meet on the Internet.
Make sure you have a private profile.
Make sure your your password is secret.
If you want to meet with someone you met on line in person, always tell an adult you trust, like your parents or older siblings, and ask them to go with you.
Arrange to meet them at daylight in a public place and let others know where you are going and who you are going to meet.
Think carefully about what you write online and what information you reveal about yourself.
Copy this info, it may be used as a timely reminder.
