Gina Swankie with the Sacramento FBI Field Office is in the studio with Mae to talk about keeping children safe on social media.

Some tips include: 

-Monitor your children’s use of the Internet; keep your Internet computer in an open, common room of the house.
-Tell your kids why it’s so important not to disclose personal information online.
-Check your kids’ profiles and what they post online.
-Report inappropriate activity to the website or law enforcement immediately.
-Explain to your kids that once images are posted online they lose control of them and can never get them back.
-Instruct your kids to use privacy settings to restrict access to profiles so only the individuals on their contact lists are able to view their profiles.
-Remind kids to only add people they know in real life to their contact lists.
