Kathryn Rose author of "The Parent's Guide to Facebook"

Kathryn Rose joined me today on Page Readers to discuss her latest book "The Parent's Guide to Facebook."

Face it, everyone is on Facebook.  If they're not, they're thinking about it.  And if you are, you need to know how to guard your personal information and that of your children.

In her easy to follow, understand and more importantly - put into use, guide to Facebook, Kathryn gives us the information we need to protect ourselves and our kids from the unknown that lurks beyond our computer screens.

There is so much we don't know, and so much we just assume to be normal or even mandatory.  Just because there is an empty box waiting to be filled with your phone number or email address, doesn't mean we have to turn over that information.  Be careful of what you share!

Read through the privacy settings on your account, and your kids accounts.  It really is an eye opener when you begin to see all the little boxes that are automatically checked for you, that gives out your information because you didn't read the instructions!

The game and rules are always changing, so as a player you've got to know what's happening or before you know it you'll be out of the game, and possibly so much more.  Get Kathryn's book NOW, get and stay informed!
