Ask a parent or guardian for permission to have a profile on a social networking site

If you are under the age of 18 you are a minor. Many social networking sites are targeted to teenagers and young adults; therefore, you should ask a parent or guardian before engaging in any social networking activity. After all, it was most likely your parent or guardian who even made it possible for you access the World Wide Web. Give them the courtesy of asking before you attempt to reveal personal details of your life to millions of users. Always share your most up to date user name and password with your parents or caregivers. If you give your parent or guardian your login information remember it’s about protecting you not the “helicopter parent” lurking over your shoulder.
