Ireland's Ministry of Justice, Equality and Law Reform has just published a parents' guide to social networking, technology news site ENN reports. "The guide explains what social networking Web sites are and how they operate, all in a user-friendly format." The beauty of this is how available the booklet will be and that it's free. The government will distribute it through libraries, community information centres, credit unions, and Web sites, and mobile-phone companies will do so through their retail outlets. Please see the article for links. And – forgive the shameless self-promotion – my co-author and I published such a Parent's Guide to Teen Social Networking in the US and UK a couple of years ago (see MySpaceUnraveled.com) with Peachpit Press and Pearson Education.
