This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
This book was very thorough in what it did cover. It covered Twitter and Facebook thoroughly, and had some really good suggestions for talking with your kids about internet safety and how the internet impacts them. It didn't touch AT ALL on the more 'anonymous' social networking sites - Kik, Snapchat, or even Tumblr. Even though it came out in 2013, those sites were around then, so I feel like it was remiss in that.

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
A useful primer for parents who are new to the idea of social media and to the potential risks and rewards for teens. The information is more of a basic introduction than an in-depth discussion; I hoped to use this as a resource for developing a digital citizenship curriculum for middle school students and parents, but the material was a little too low-level for this purpose. Definitely valuable for the right audience.

A good source for parents (especially those who are not big users of social media) to assist them in understanding and guiding their tweens and teens in the advantages and drawbacks of using such platforms as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. Naturally, with the ever-expanding and changing world of social media, no book can hope to remain completely relevant for long, but this title is a good introduction to overall best practices. Recommended. ( )

A useful book for parents or anyone who is concerned about the dangers of social media. Obviously, media gets outdated or is used by different groups of people. The need for parents to understand and be vigilant never gets outdated. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0897936590, Paperback)

Forget sex, drugs, and rock & roll — today's parents and teachers have to deal with cyberbullying, sexting, internet addiction, and exposure to inappropriate online content. Fortunately, expert researcher Dr. Megan Moreno has written this book as a guide to help you teach your kids about balance and boundaries in their internet and media use and the skills they need to thrive online.

Sex, Drugs 'n Facebook will help you to zero in on the problem — and the solution. Backed by researchers funded by a $2.5 million NIH grant, this guide provides a clear toolkit for teaching our young people how to avoid the dangers of the internet while taking advantage of its full potential.

The book is grounded in the real experiences of young people on the internet. Incorporating the insight of teens and college-age students, each chapter includes real-life case studies and helpful new methods for productive conversations about these situations, in your own home or classroom.

Dr. Moreno gives actionable advice based on the most cutting-edge research in social media and technology use. Respectful of the needs of both children and adults, Sex, Drugs 'n Facebook is the smart guide to raising cybersensible kids.

The book includes "Parents' Toolkits" with conversation starters, discussion guidelines and real-life examples, age-specific recommendations for tailoring advice to pre-teen, teen or college-age children, summaries of recent studies, including take-home points for parents or teachers. Sex, Drugs 'n Facebook will prepare parents to have "The Talk"--not about sex but about cybersafety and appropriate Internet use--and the solution-focused approach will appeal to people who have already experienced some of the pitfalls of unguided Internet use.… (more)
