The easy guide to socialising online

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
  • XBox Live
  • Nintendo DSi
  • 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?
