Do not ask "what's best" because this question cannot be answered objectively. Each and everyone has their own view about what's best in a certain area. The best is what works best for you!

Please ensure you read the new safety notice below, it includes some important information to remember when your online.

Be safe online...

Social networking sites like this one are popular on the Internet. Used properly, they are a unique communications tool to keep in touch with friends, colleagues and other like minded people. But like any online tools, social networking sites can be gamed and abused by scammers and other unscrupulous people. People maybe aware of the resent grooming and murder of a teen girl from Darlington, North east england dubbed 'The Facebook Killer'.

It's more important then ever to protect yourself by following a few important steps.

• Be careful what you put online. When you put a photo, or video or written account online, it stays for a very long time and a lot of people can see it. Criminals use the sites to trawl for personal information they can use. Don't put anything up that you might regret. This includes compromising photos and videos, and especially any sensitive personal data eg. address's and dates of birth.

• Protect your privacy. Most social networking services offer extensive privacy options. You can use these settings to prevent anyone you don't know from viewing your information. Think about the information you have online, and whom you want seeing it; set your privacy levels accordingly.

• Be careful about meeting your social networking "friends" in person. It's not easy to tell who a person is from a photograph and a few lines of text. If you're going to meet in person, think about doing so in a public place, during the day.

• Be VERY involved with your kids' social networking. Children are big users of social networking services and face the greatest risks, such as child predation, exploitation and "cyber-bullying." If you decide to let them use social networking sites, limit use, insist on seeing their profile and interactions regularly, and make sure you personally know all of their "friends." Be aware that some kids host "dummy" pages for their parents' benefit, keeping their "real" pages secret.Consider insisting that your child only use social networking sites in common areas like the living room.

• Get away from an unpleasant situation in a chatroom by logging out (this just takes one click) or by changing your screen name.

• Think before you answer private messages. It can be harder to end a conversation in a private chat than in a public chat. A private chat may end up being more personal than you like.

• Use a nickname, not your real name, and a nickname that is not going to attract the wrong type of attention.

If you have experienced anything like the above while using this site please speak up, contact either myself or another administrator, or if anything does happen please don't be afraid to speak up.

Thanks to Artuntaure for providing the be safe doc.
