  • Facebook's New Privacy Settings

    by
    In response to recent criticism, Facebook has added new privacy settings and made them easier to access. The new
    settings give users more security options for who can view content that’s on their profile. In a nutshell, the new privacy settings address tagging, blocking events, blocking apps, and setting visibility restrictions to the public and friends.

  • Helping Kids Understand Their Digital Footprint

    by
    It’s easy to talk in general about an important topic and apply a catchy phrase to it without our kids really ever understanding it. When it comes to explaining the weight of their digital footprint kids can quickly glaze over and check out if we fail to speak in terms that matter to them.

  • How to Set Up Safe Web Browsing on iOS7

    by
    If you subscribe to Yoursphere for Parents, then you know how much I advocate for Apple products in your home (and mine!) I’ve written time and time again about the parental controls that Apple offers through the Restriction settings of the iPhone, iPod and iPad. These have always been great tools for helping your child or teen have an age-appropriate and safe experience on their iDevice. As iOS7 makes its way onto more and more iDevices —especially with the recent lease of the 5S and 5C—it’s important that parents know what changes have been made to the operating system.

  • Kik - What It Is and What Parents Need to Know

    by
    Parents are concerned about sexting – and rightfully so. But as a result of that concern, I believe there’s also a heightened sense of awareness among parents. I get emails from parents every day, asking how to prevent their child from downloading certain apps, and what’s the best way to monitor what their child is doing on their smartphone. Sexting continues to be an underlying concern in all of these conversations — probably because kids and teens use their smartphones to text more than anything else, and according to kids in the UK, sexting is just the new way to flirt. But what a lot of parents aren’t aware of is the fact that their child doesn’t need to be on a texting plan in order to text. There are plenty of third-party apps that offer texting services for free, and one that has come up in
    several conversations that I’ve had with parents is Kik.
