Let's hope so.
training them to accept 100% monitoring and reporting?
Some teenagers go way over the line on Facebook threatening other kids. It’s no wonder people feel the need to homeschool. Facebook should monitor these threats.

You have only seen a precursor of much much to follow (it's in the works)....

A whole lot of folks use an alias on Facebook. The only people who know are the person's friends. They need to give it up.
