The ConnectSafely.org and the iKeepSafe Coalition have released "A Parents' Guide to Facebook," a 35-page booklet and online resource designed to help parents show their teens how to optimize their privacy and safety on the world's largest social networking site.

"Many of our recommendations are stricter than Facebook's default settings for teens but, fortunately, Facebook provides excellent tools for further customization. This booklet helps parents and teens customize those tools for teen-appropriate safety, privacy, and reputation protection," said ConnectSafely co-director Larry Magid.

This guide is very well done and offers step- by step instructions and illustrations.
