I liked this infographics but at the end you see a nice LONG URL being reference d for more information.... This is NOT the correct solution for an infographic as it is not clickable. So this long URL is totally useless on this picture.!!!! Have short URL if you want people to go to your website from within an image. If you can feed that back to the author of the infographic. By the age of 11 kids are adolescents and value the opinion of their friends as much as the opinions of their parents, so peer pressure is big to do as everybody else. So social media or real life, you have to rely on their 'BON SENS' (good judgement) as much as possible. Not easy when you have not much background and experience.

I agree with you A. Swiss. I think the importance of the "tell me" is to encourage your child to open up the lines of communication with you as a parent. We have open conversation with our kids and at this point (teen and younger) that they are sharing what sites they visit. We work with them as partners.
However, I also agree with you that we must be involved. Depending on them to "tell us" is not a solution by itself. It's only one of many things that we need to do as we take an active role in ensuring our kids are safe online.

Well, my kids are in the 11-15 years range and I can not count on them to show me what they do. I know the sites they use, I am a friend with them on Instagram, Path, .... but I don't know their interactions with their friends and friends of friends. I pip from time to time when they leave it logged on, but the best way to protect them from themselves is to educate them. And repeat them the dangers, and show them stories and examples of the wrong usage of social media.
No facebook for them because it feels too open and this company is evil. But she uses Instagram which now belongs to Facebook...
Social media has some great features and they can be an advantage for your kid's socialisation. It is no easy subject and requires a little more attention than "tell me"
