The Australian Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy has developed a fantastic resource for parents that offers in depth explanations about:
- social networking
- search engines and
- online games
Games or platforms such as:
- World of Warcraft

- Second Life
and more are covered. There are answers to the following questions:
- who can access the site?
- is my information safe?
- what are the terms and conditions of each site?

A great resource that spells out the safety settings for a number of popular resources. Check it out here.
