Got a call from the school today saying they got a call from a parent whose child had been invited to join a social networking site that my daughter (6th grader) had set up. She apparently set it up as an alternative to Google Buzz for her middle school. Here's the thing... You're supposed to be 13 to set up your site and participate. Obviously she and the other 64 kids on the site lied about their age. She set it up Monday (65 users added since then) using another site and it's actually pretty cool. It allows you to set up groups, chat, video chat, leave messages, post pictures and video, etc. Much like FB. She has been monitoring content and members for anything inappropriate. Dh and I looked at it tonight and so far it looks harmless. The kids simly wnqt a place to communicate. There is no inappropriate content and all users are students at here school. I love her initiative and creativity but worry about the lesson being taught about lying about your age and our personal liability should things get out of control. Dh wants to let her leave it up but tighten the security, get a group of adults to moderate, and I think we need to have it taken down. I hate to do that because the site and it's importance (i know, how can it be that important to them if it's only been up since Monday) to the kids in the school community mean a lot to her and the other students but I don't want to encourage illegal behavior and violating rules either. What do you think? I'm standing alone in my family and don't even feel that strongly about my position. How can I fight given those circumstances?
